An Garda Síochána san Austráil

Fake Garda van in Melbourne

Fake Garda van in Melbourne

There are at least two home-made Garda vans driving around in Australia, one in Melbourne apparently, and another in Cairns. Perhaps there are more doing the rounds!

The photos shown here are from the one in Melbourne. These are not imported originals, oh no. Someone has actually gone to the effort of creating a fake Garda van, on the other side of the world. And painted it by hand. This is true dedication to the cause.

Look at the beautifully ornate paint-work

Here we can see the van in action on Google Maps Street View, trundling along: 57 Carlisle Street, St Kilda, Australia

I hope he's smoking out that window.

And finally, here's another fake Garda van, also seemingly from Australia:

This one is less realistic, but does have amusing blue lights.

These fake Garda vans certainly seem to be rather popular Down Under. Perhaps I should build my own... Or construct a fake Garda bike...

Photos are not my own, but gathered from the dreaded boards.ie
