At this point I suspect they're trying not to bring the father into custody because they're waiting for Tim to show up to his place, or for him to go meet Tim somewhere.
Just tell Daddy to have Tim come in and talk to you guys so you can discuss the matter of "calling off the cops" He might very well be that stupid, if you're lucky...

Just for giggles, what would the excess km charge be for circumnavigation of continental Australia?

Well, it's only 39c per km....

So around $6, 170

Now, as I write this, it's been nearly a month. Tim hasn't been caught yet, but the vehicle tracking stopped somewhere about an hour away from here.
What kind of tracker does your vehicle have? Is it one that's easily disabled or removed? I'm wondering why the police didn't trace the car by the tracker.

I can sure see why Tim is the way he is. Just look at the father. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

The parent clearly taught the kid everything he knows, so of course he will stick up for his son. The word bogan means working class, but not red neck? So kinda more "white trash"?

And yeah, driving across Australia would be different than in the US. I would like one day to drive from coast to coast. Of course I would probably not want to pay to rent a car for weeks, but if it was cheap I like the idea of driving to Florida and then flying back.

NAR - AFAIK, Yeah -pretty much. I believe it's used to mean "white trash" as opposed to simply "redneck" -- it's specifically derogatory...and it seems like these two winners are good examples ~_~

I made a post about bogans! Part 1's done, part 2 will have to wait until I finish work tonight.

Honestly, I'm not really sure why they haven't. The tracker might not be that accurate. There's also a chance he's popped it into another car or simply burned the work van out. I shall make inquiries.

First update!

Tim's not been caught yet, but his Dad did come in to yell at various people. He wanted my partner to call off the police, which is something that you can do apparently.
You know, I'd find it hard, if Dad had come in to yell that at me, to adopt my best (i.e. WORST) accent and say

"Oi Mate! I'll be happy to call off the coppers as soon as your kid stops stealin' me car!"

You forgot to ad "ya wanker!" To the end of that statement.

Would have done it had I been there, but it was partner. Dane's English. He could have gone with.

"Well now my good man, I'd certainly call the policemen away, the very instant your young man ceases with the theft of our motor vehicles."

I typed this, read it, and I keep hearing it in Stephen Fry's voice.

Well, that settles it, we're going to have to construct a big list of country-specific responses, complete with overdone accents, local argot, and an appropriately-stereotyped voice actor for each one...
