Australian "Utes"

Wasko and me 

May 2004:

One of the coolest things on the Australian roads is the Ute. Most of them are Fords and Holdens and especially the ones from the seventies look sweet. The yellow beauty in the top pics is a 1974 Ford Falcon XB and belongs to Wasko. Wasko took me all over Sydney with it, to visit fellow designer Tim Cameron and to see an Australian pinstriper at work (more about that next week). Did you know that the black Interceptor in Madmax 1 & 2 was also based on a Ford Falcon XB?
Thanks Wasko!
