Topic tags/keywords: for sale ute space

Yep, it is time to sell the shop ute… I need something with a little more room inside… it is great for around town but on any trip longer than half an hour it is a little short in leg space…. for me at least… I am, after all, over 6’4”

Have a look at the ad here

Something with more leg room for a start…and maybe not so flash that I don’t want to leave it parked unattended…

How about something like this ?
Or maybe too much flash?

I drove a 66 El Camino for years.
Was surprised to learn that there were ‘Utes’ down under as far back as 1950.
The earliest ones here were the 57 Ranchero and the 59 El Camino.

Mikethetrmite… Joe, were you talking about WoodSparky’s comment

ROFALMAO…. LOL… :)

Mike, no… I hadn’t seen the other post until now… :)

I would have to agree… My comment could easily apply to WoodSparky’s post… but, it was NOT… at the time.

Good Question!! LOL

Actually there were “UTES” down under in the 1930’s.. There were called “Tilleys” slang for Utilities.

Right you are. I’ve been a car buff all my life, owned classic vehicles, have gone to lots shows and
have never seen one of these earlier utes.
You’d have a real head turner if you could get one shipped over here.
I found the whole story of their origin here:

I wondered about “Utes” and what it meant…

Thank you for the definition… Short for Utility… makes sense…

Man, them Ausies have all sorts of ‘short fors’ that we never hear over here.
Some of the ones I’ve heard are sammy for sandwich, wally for wallet and picky for picture (not really any shorter)
muso for musician, and my favorite….. footy for football.

Arvo for afternoon
smoko for morning tea
wino for a substance abuser
hooker for a horizontally employed woman
and we use the word wally for a stupid person..
and a sandwich is a sanga
your 18 wheelers are called semis here
and a convoy is a roadtrain…
