States vie for Pirelli
STATES started trying to beat each other with clever words in the closing days of the carsGuide Pirelli calendar competition.
Together with Pirelli, carsGuide has six calendars to give away.
Only 10,000 are printed every year and none is for sale.
Each of the six calendars will be won by one reader in one of six state groupings.
And if they tell us about their tyre purchases, all entrants can also be in the running to win a set of Pirelli Cinturato tyres.
So it’s no surprise entrants from coast to coast turned to humour and rhyme to try to shine in their attempts to win.
‘‘Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but women prefer tyre-men,’’ reckons Elizabeth Karpiel, of NSW.
‘‘There once was a calendar for guys, that showed lots of (ahem) bums and thighs. They then added men, for all the women, and now there are just lots of sighs,’’ writes Jeremy Cheah, also of NSW.
Rik Downward represents the Northern Territory with: ‘‘Pictures taken in hue, make some girls feel blue, but if they only knew, their true beauty shines through.’’
‘‘It’s sexy, it’s stylish, it’s fun. It’s everything appealing rolled into one. Please put my name on the list of who’s won,’’ pleads Delia Tindal, from Queensland.
‘‘Man or woman, car or tyre, it makes no difference which we admire. VIP or mere mortal, we all appreciate the Pirelli portal,’’ ventures Jill King, of Tasmania
‘‘Blokes worship goddesses with heavenly curls, chicks fancy gladiators in tights and sandals. Pirelli’s calendar satisfies all. Question is, on whose side of the wall?’’ says Melly Legiman, of Victoria.
‘‘Lovely models as far as any eye can see, no contest Pirelli, just give it to me,’’ directs Roger Ward, of Western Australia.
