mad Oh the humanity

I've been seeing some very strange things around brisbane over the past couple of weeks. Holden's seem to be metamorphising into fords. The other week I saw an HQ ute with an XA grill on it. Not the bonnet, as is commonplace, but the grill and headlights. Actually it looked really cool, as the sharper XA grill really gels with the HQ's squarer shape. The next bit of oddness was not nearly as pleasant. It was an ancient red VB commy, with what seemed to be a homemade AU XR8 front bumper ie the XR quad headlight look applied to an crappydoor. It was lifted in my estimation by the flame paint job up front (albeit also suspiciously like a home made job) but inescapably condemmed by it's wearing of 12 slot wheels. Do holden drivers not understand that these are a FORD wheel? Do we go driving our falcs around with those funny XU1 five spokes? No! God it was hideous. And let's not even mention the Barina ute I saw a couple of weeks ago.

You're not the only one!! About a week ago I saw what seemed to be a Rolls Royce 4WD Ute (with lift kit) turning into Elizabeth Street.
Saw an EL sapphire with awesome paint. It was electric silver where the sun shined off it, but deeeep burgandy everywhere else. I think they call it candy apple paint.
Saw an EB? with Cobra stripes & shaker scoop
Have seen a WB ute with merc grille
Starting to see lots of hot EA-ED 6cyl Falcons
and a F100 with an almost illegal lift kit
Saw a Jag Ute a few years ago

ho ho ho, geez that sounds like some pretty spunout sitings there mate.

On the positive side of the traffic scene, i'm seeing more nice doneup EF-EL falcons around. Seems a number of people realise the very understated potential.

O.k, here in Geelong there is a guy with a VB Commodore with HUGE Chevy badges on it. That would be like me putting Aston Martin badges on my EF.
