    In special built Corvette like early 60s model video. This dude said he weigh 130 pds. yes maybe in 3rd grade. On that video everybody thought Hey something wrong this don't look right?/ This video something happen we get good look @ him. He is full of Donuts or Sh**. Or Both?? Is he just trying sell us a web site he talk about? I just hate liar's. Once they start or caught, I got better things to than waste my time listen to them. 130 pds he full of sh**.

    The ute is a metaphor for what seems to be an inevitability for everything indigenous to this great continent... For whatever reason, things come here with a bunch of ingredients, they get rearranged to become uniquely adapted to the environment, this improves over generations to a point of perfection and then.... An similar, yet not perfectly adapted species is introduced on mass and finally the delicate environment in which the indigenous live is distorted and destroyed by the parasitic invasive species.
    We once had the greatest wilderness on earth here, a window into the prehistoric times of nature and man... we traded it for hipsters, mass produced pickup trucks, feral cats and cane toads.
