Images of Canberra – They See Me Rollin’, They Hatin’

By johnboy - 20 November 2008 42

I saw this one in Forde the other day and just had to share.

On the bright side, at least the half with the rego sticker on it is probably kosher.

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to images@the-riotact.com

Mini truckin’ is growing in Canberra. The set up pictured is no different to putting a flatbed on the back of a ford ute etc. The cool thing is many also have air bag suspension – hence the tubs in the tray of this one.

IMHO pursuits such as these are much better than spending cash on drugs etc.

But, can you have one without the other … wouldn’t you need to be on drugs to do that? :p

Isn’t it drug money that pays for this stuff? 😉

Except perhaps the fact that the back end is significantly lower to the ground.

And it is not so much “Mini-trucking”, as “really low ute-ing….”

This tosser was hanging around Civic today, complete with blow-off valve… He couldn’t reverse park it near the Waldorf… Ended up about a meter from the kerb.

Geez – any time someone wants to do something different to their vehicle they are instantly branded a druggie or a tosser!

Mini trucking came out of the US where it was an offshoot of the traditional street machine culture. Specifically it used Japanese (and some American) modern utes as their basis. It more recently has been combined with both japanese ideas – making small 1.8 or 2l engines go fast and the hispanic favourite of the highly adjustable air bag suspension.

These are trends, cultures and sub-cultures. Just like people who participate in internet forums and news sites!

Oh common….I don’t like to generalise, but if you’re driving a car like this, you’re a tosser…..or at the very least, you look like a tosser.

It’s a work in progress – just like houses and buildings – they look crap while they are being done – but the finished product is much better.

Personally, it is not my cup of tea. I do appreciate the amount of dedication and skill it takes to make your car look exactly the way you want, even if it makes you look like a tosser.

150 years ago young blokes had hand made saddles – these days it’s a hand made car!
