Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.

I would hate to see what the ute we were looking at last year would have weighed. It would have been an AU XL V8 auto 6x2 Transit Horden conversion with custom insulated "roach coach" style body.

Nothing on this earth beats holding your newborn child for the first time.
