Justin's FG XR8 Ute
Read the full article here:
One of the most curious aspects of car ownership is the inevitable ups and
downs that arise during the modification journey. From simple mods to full
scale builds the level of blood, sweat and tears is undeniable, yet the
results generally make it all worthwhile. This is certainly the case for
Justin, whose fateful victim was his beloved BF2 XR8 ute 'Pokey', finished
in the rare Breeze green. After losing his car to a freak fire accident, he
was faced with the decision of continuing with another B series or starting
a fresh project with the then newly released FG model.

1995 Ford Falcon Outback XG ute
Australian Ford ute promotional video from 1995:
"Outback in the Outback: the Falcon Longreach Outback Ute.
When a two wheel drive Falcon Longreach ute came twelfth overall in last
year's Australian Safari, a lot of people thought, 'I'd like one of those."
Well now they can have one.
The Longreach Outback ute is based on the class winning vehicle that
covered the 6,240km between Sydney and Darwin.
'Outback in the outback' proves that you don't need four wheel drive every
time you drive off the tarmac.
The Longreach Outback isn't intended to replace four wheel drives; some
people will always need one. But this film convincingly shows the Outback's
abilities. And they may well be exactly what you need.
