    Yesterday we picked up our new buffets and hutch which we will be putting in our new renovated kitchen. These things are huge and, solid and heavy!:eek:

    Thank god we got a single cab as we managed to fit all of it in with a little help from a forklift (getting it off was another story) :lol:

    We actually think he ran better with a bit of weight in him!

    Today we went for a nice drive up the road, grabbed a coffee and checked out the Phoenix Sculpture Gardens at Mt Glorious. The sign that stated "driveway is safe, keep going" sort of lied a bit, it was an adventure and a HALF!!!:eek:

    The place is owned by a lovely artistic German couple who loved "The G". He wanted to take her for a spin around the block, loved the iron cross brake light and asked if he could paint a lovely Swastika on the side for us, Ummmmm... No :lol:

    So, is the SC actually lowered or just suffering under too much weight? :)

    Oh he's low alright, KCW narrowed beam, dropped spindles and adjustable spring plates. He did pretty well under the weight, we thought if he got too low with the weight we could wind the rear up a bit. He looked cool all stocked up :p

    Nice shots of EC and The G, Ash. :cool:

    It's always nice to see a Single Cab doing a little spot of work from time to time...

    What a lot of ute owners do not realise is that there is less weight over the rear wheels so performance is not as good ie traction loss. So with weight in the tray they do go better.

    Some like their cars in the weeds but the G is sure in the gravel :)
