I think it was him - I recall a TV episode of a big guy starting a car with a dead battery. He had the car jacked up with a rear wheel off the ground, in 4th gear (manual) and physically grabbed and spun the rear wheel by hand, and eventually got it started. Never seen this before or since.



Out back Jack, he had an art studio in Broken Hill when I was working there in the 80's...I believe his son is still shooting roos in South Australia.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

There was also a guy who was into big croc's and had bare feet all the time, don't remember his name.
Irwin had an American wife, she was the likely the marketing arm of the outfit as his flamboyance is considered differently by Aussies than it would be from the market she was familiar with.

Old Jack Absalom was the genuine article. There are a good number of his programs on Youtube, like this one:
