Well before we started to build our house we bought our Hilux ute in anticipation of building someday. Buying a vehicle that had no room inside for luggage but plenty of room outside for everything else was a statement of intent to build, as it was our only vehicle and not the most practical for some things. But it was totally practical for so much and allowed us a versatility that we have found invaluable. So I’m a bit sad that we’re selling it.
It’s too much for our bank accounts to bear the cost of insuring and registering 2 vehicles so we’re putting our famous (to us, at least) Toyota Hilux Ute up for sale. In its time it has hauled many large loads of timber, many small loads of all sorts, trays of gravel and sand, pulled the trailer carrying our feature poles and much more. And shifted house for us twice!
So it’s on the market. It’s given us heaps of cheap running as it runs on LPG. Need a ute? Click here for details. It’s very useful. And chicks dig a bloke in a ute. Apparently. I think blokes dig a chick in a ute too. I reckon it’s got a few more straw bale builds left in it yet.
