Tell you what, if you ever make it to Germany, send me a message. Give me at least 6 months notice, just in case i stop using this site - but i promise ill set a reminder every 6 months to check. And when you get here, ill drive you down there and we can go for a few laps on the Ring. And what gives? i DONT like pick up trucks.. i loathe them.. i do however love aussie utes. to most people there isnt really a difference between a Ute and Pickup (isnt a ute just a pickup? ). But to me, theres a world of difference and i think most users on this site will be able to understand that. Anyway, yeah, im just an Aussie living in Germany and im sick of seeing BMW's and Porsche and Corvettes and all that crap... (oh and ive got kids, so a ute is perfect for hauling **** AND having fun.) Re the straight alcohol, I could try that.. But i think thats a bit extreme for a daily driver.. I dont know, maybe. First 102.. then i can go from there.
