Is it wrong to want an XR8 ute when your not a tradesman??? I see the performance value of a ute more than its practical value and I realise they are a real work horse when compared to the show pony SS ute.

Someone please put me on the straight and narrow - am I crazy for wanting an XR8 ute????

I just want one!

Also found this cool 6 minute video of a red AU XR8 ute doing the rounds in a carpark in the US!!!!

And to quote the article "...Ford says it can’t import the Falcon Ute because it’s a truck-type vehicle that would get hit with a 25% import tax. But Toyota got around this tax on its pick-up truck for years by making the pick-up bed in California, importing the truck from Japan, and assembling the two in the U.S. Since local assembly was involved, it avoided the import tax. We think Ford could do the same thing..."

Hehe good to see I'm not the only one!

Ha but have yet to see a person driving an XR8 ute in a business suit :D :D

The rear of the EB is way too high - i have a sub box in the boot with 2x10 inch subs but that still doesnt lower it - although when i have 3 rear passengers it lowers the car quite nicely :)
