It will actually be for sale in December this year as my company car is due for renewal and i will be going for a dual cab ute, something like a Ranger/Hilux/Navara etc. This will make it easier to take my family when we go racing as at the moment we end up taking 2 cars everywhere.
I have seen Guffers truck, nice truck.

Very nice.. hmmmm, I wonder what it would be like to get rego'ed in Perth

This pic was taken on the old Bears track, about 10km for Yallingup in 1993 - I think we stopped there for a "smoke & piss" pre surf early in morning on one of the many dawn patrol day trips it took us one!! You could camp for days down there then and know one cared or bothered yah!!

Man I miss those days!!

Lucky bastards! Dieing to get my hands on a pickup. Never have the right kind of money at the right time.

One day though, it will happen (has to actually, as my HQ Ute has officially died).

was heading up to Townsville fully loaded with coldroom panel (had taken the boxes off) got to an overtaking lane just past Gladstone and was over taking a double B when the **** box towing a caravan in front of him either missed a gear or stalled but the truckie had no choice but to push me out into the on coming traffic and get in my lane, I locked up the brakes as there was 3 cars heading my way, luckly they moved over so I stood on it to get out of the way (that 454 could get up and go). Wasn't till I tried to slow down that I realised the brake line had blown off.... pumping brakes /spraying brake fluid onto the block by the time I pulled her up smoke was coming out of the bonnet and before long flames were coming up under the dash. Had time to get my gear out the back and had to watch her burn. insurance covered it and only lost $2000 on her and the $10000 load of panel Leanne was following me the ford and saw the truck getting the sway up and got back in behind him.

I now have a 2006 GMC dually, had her for nearly 2 years now will post up a pic
