is there life after death?
I was waiting at the Forster Visitors' Information Centre when the ute rolled in to the parking spot next to us. It was obviously someone's baby and pride and joy. It had been lowered considerably and a deep throated roar came from its two stainless steel exhaust pipes. Various advertisements for oils and tools were airbrushed down its sides. There was even a plug for Lee Kernaghan, the Australian country singer. The tray contained two large, well made steel toolboxes with heavy padlocks.

As we reversed out, I saw the best part. Across the ute's tailgate was the slogan: Is there life after death? Touch this vehicle and find out!
