    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    Ok, I'll confess to being from the US. What's the big deal (other than an extra set of tires you need to replace)?
    It's gotta be weather balloons. It's always weather balloons. Big, fiery, exploding weather balloons.

    FYI it is a joke mockup....
    What's the point of a smart ute? the smart was designed as a small practical city car, turning it into a ute would defeat the purpose of the concept..

    I thought it was funny, but maybe the humour does not translate..

    Sport Utility Vehicle or SUV.

    Those wacky canadians/europeans/australians.. they say and spell everything wrong.

    I like the Colour of that Ute...and no we don't spell anything wrong...it's the British way and considering they invented English, I think ours is the right way.

    Leave out the sports part.. a Ute is a Utility Vehicle, a workhorse...
    You silly yanks would call it a pick up truck. Out here they make Utes out of just about any car not just trucks..

    Well, at least I got the "ute" part.

    Actually, I think the mock-up looks cool. Put a removeable hard cap over the bed & I might even consider buying one (well, assuming I could get one here in the states).

    It wouldn't succeed in the US, we are going the opposite way, with larger and larger vehicles. I recently saw a Ford F250 that was an extended extended cab - it had 3 sets of doors (total of 6 doors) plus an 8 ft bed.

    Not something I would want to drive, but whatever floats your boat...

    3 sets of doors? Do you have a link to a picture? That's one of the strangest-sounding vehicles...

    That had to be a custom vehicle... I don't think Detroit has gone that crazy yet.

    I've seen a custom limo based on a Ford Excursion that had 4 sets of rear passenger doors and a hot tub! Plus, it had a lift kit and huge off-road tires (like something that big is going off road!).

    So the first post in this thread showed a fake, but presumably this isn't: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...c7n2.html&e=4. The picture made me think of the Smart Ute.

    It was one of the strangest looking vehicles too. I saw this on my drive to work one day, so I have no photo. It was pre-Eyemodule...
