Robert Irwin Shared Photos And Memories Of His Late Father’s Ute
Robert captioned the carousel of photos with some special memories. “My dad’s ute… it’s a special car. From early memories when Dad would park and let me pretend to drive, to more recently when I took my drivers test in it (and somehow managed not to stall it 😂),” he wrote.
The caption continued to share a few more recent memories. “I remember my first solo drive in this car after I got my license – it was to the hospital to meet my niece for the first time, right after she was born. And now, the ute still comes on road trips to this day…”
Many of Robert’s followers left sweet comments about how he continues to cherish his father’s car.
“I love that you drive your dad’s car ❤️,” one person wrote. Another added, “I still have the remote-control version of your dads car with a figurine of him and various crocodiles and snakes at my parents’ house! Awesome to see she’s still alive.”
Many people expressed how wonderful it is that the car is still running and that Robert drives it. “I can feel the sentimental nostalgia,” wrote one person. “Amazing how it’s still going and you’re using it bet your dad be over the moon,” said another.
A few people also shared their memories and experiences with the late Crocodile Hunter. “Your Dad was such a great man. He would come to our house and entertain my children with stories and get excited over small reptiles in our back yard,” one follower wrote.
“First time we went to Australia zoo Steve proudly announced Terri was pregnant with you. He was so happy. We went home to find out I was too,” shared another.
