Get your old man to swap his ute for the lime green one pictured above. Very nice. I hope it did't rain on you all day.

it actually didn't rain much at all in geelong. just a few very, very light showers (just mist really). the old man said last week that he probably should of got the turbo! but a pursuit ute for dad? 290kW is alot to handle :)
