Something To Think About
(when you’re building Fords in Australia)
a short photo essay:
We went to the Ford Discovery Centre today, and learned about the history of Ford motor vehicles in Geelong, VIC. This was the birthplace of the Australian utility vehicle, or ‘ute’ — a single body vehicle combining the comfort of a coupe (pronounced ‘coo pay’) with the utility bed with tailgate in the rear.
Here’s the very first ute, built to satisfy a customer’s request for a vehicle they could use on the farm during the week, and comfortably (and stylishly) drive to church on the weekends.
