A Bunch of B & S sprinkled with Muster

Posted by 5771848 on

Station wagons? Too many seats. Sports cars? Too fast. Pickup trucks? Too tall. Cube vans? too useful. The pride of Australia comes the mix of them all: The Ute. Short for Utility Coupe. An attempt to make a vehicle socially acceptable for any occasion, the origins come from Ford Australia in the form of the V8 Utility.   Continued as a tradition in the land down under, the Ute has remained a staple of form and function since the Early 1930's. Even to this day, Holden and Ford battle for sales over modern Utes.   However, the popularity and following has cultivated in a very specific way. With great attendance there is a gathering of Ute-thusiasts at 'Ute Musters'. Where a large number of B & S styled Ute's compete for prizes in appearance and skills competitions.   Bull bar's a blazin', tail gates covered in decals. It's hooning at it's best with the Yobbos. Height isn't an issue, but rather surviving an impact of a kangaroo when bombing along some of the endless central Australian desert roads. My favorite award from Ute Musters: "Most Feral Ute".
