Volkswagen has uncovered what could be the first hint at a hot new performance-focused Amarok ute.
The sporty new Amarok Concept Worthersee 2013 was revealed at the weekend’s Volkswagen fan show in Austria, boasting a punchy 3.0-litre turbo diesel V6 engine producing 200kW of power and 600Nm of torque. Read more »
Could this be Fossy’s new gay ute?
The blue oval unveiled the Ford Atlas Concept at this week’s Detroit show, labelling it a vehicle to showcase the design, capability, fuel efficiency and smart technologies that will define future utility vehicles.
”The Ford Atlas Concept previews the innovations that will transform what people expect from their pickup (ute),” Raj Nair, the company’s group vice president, Global Product Development, said.
Ford claims the concept is inspired by decades of listening to customers at the places they work and play adding they believe the result is a purpose-driven design with prominent wheel arches, a wide stance and chiseled grille to reinforce its functional image. Read more »
An email from a reader:
Cam, I’ve often thought your merciless attacks about Foss’ choice of utility were more a freudian reflection on the size of your member.
But, this came to my attention, and now, like many of your loyal readers, I clearly see that indeed you are right on everything!
Please forgive me Cam.
National needs to make better ute choices!

A concerned reader emails:
Cam, the Sydney Morning Herald has written about the new gay ute from Ford.
The issue is that they like the New Ford Ranger Wildtrak, and think Hugh Jackman would be a likely celebrity owner….it’s sickening Cam, not a good way to start 2013.
Please make sure Fossy doesn’t see this.
A concerned reader.
Yes this is certainly very concerning. I understand that Fossy is indeed looking for a new gay ute, his old gay one, that was seen off road the other day when it had to avoid a car park puddle at Napier airport, has been barely used, ever since he scored the Crown BMW limo with his ministers job.

If the PM is in any doubt he should ask Max
While some of the leaders looked resplendent in traditional Cambodian silk shirts, John Key looked, well, a little gay, in hot pink silk with bulging shoulder pads.
Mr Key described it later as “fetching”. And he said others had thought so too.
“That was broadly along the lines that the President [Barack Obama] described it as too,” he said with barely suppressed delight.
John Key obviously reads this blog because he has sledged a radio host for his gay red top…and from the photo it appears that like his comment about David Beckham he is dead right…the top is gay:
Another foot-in-mouth moment for the Prime Minister.
John Key has courted controversy again for calling a red jacket “gay” on Friday’s episode of the Farming Show on Newstalk ZB and Radio Sport.
“You’re munted mate, you’re never going to make it, you’ve got that gay red top on,” he told Jamie Mackay, as he laid a golfing challenge down.
Maybe John Key could arrange to get Craig Foss to pick up Jamie Mackay in his gay ute.
This is a tough one…my mates are evenly split on this. It certainly has a gay name.
Jeep unveiled its Wrangler based Gladiator pickup at the North American International Auto Show seven years ago, and at last a production date has been announced.
Jeep President Mike Manley says that a decision was coming ”pretty soon” about a Jeep branded pickup, and with a refreshed lineup expected for 2015-2016 model year, we expect the Jeep ute to appear then.
Jeep officials still have to decide whether to build a two-door ute or a four-door version that would not be as capable off-road.

Joe Diffie obviously hasn’t met Craig Foss or seen his gay ute:
I was sent this by a reader who thinks it isn’t a gay ute. Considering he is ginger in the most terrible way, and they don’t have souls I don’t really think he even remotely qualified to judge whether or not this is a gay ute.
