Territory Rolls Uphill !

I was at the infamous road "straws lane" last weekend (just near hanging rock near woodend in victoria), and sure enough, the Territory rolls uphill. "straws lane" is one of those hills that when you park the car, and put it into neutral, the car rolls up the hill. Over 2 tonne, and a few passengers later it rolled up hill. If you are ever near hanging rock (picnic at hanging rock fame), then try out straws lane. It is certainly memorable, and everyone in the car FELT like they were rolling uphill.

Gotta love optical illusions. Plenty of these "spots" all around the world.

Nah, "let's copy Subaru while forgetting that high-body models are all the rage and hope they don't realise it's only the wagon tarted up with extra cladding while charging an outrageous premium" type vehicles cannot defy gravity just the intelligence of those conned into buying them.
