Australia was the birthplace of the ute, and for decades they’ve been used by tradies all over the country.

But do we really need utes?  These guys would suggest they are not required…


Astra loaded with timber

Not even a lack of roof racks stops this go-getter.


Bunnings loading

Yeah she’s sweet mate.  Bunnings special…


Teamwork

Teamwork getting the job done!


Tradies BMW

Pretty sure BMW didn’t have this in mind when designing the M3.


Astra ute.

Could this be the same maroon Holden Astra shown earlier?  Clearly the vehicle of a quality tradesman.


Convertible tradie.

Convertibles are perfect for tradies, especially when the rear spoiler doubles as a rack.


Duct tape.

Car + duct tape = better than a ute.


Focus.

Liquorland bag as a flag!  Perfect.


Pipes.

Even a Suzuki Swift can do the job.


Mercedes tradie.

Never mind a ute, this guy doesn’t even need roof racks.


Plumber car.

Mitsubishi Magna – built for plumbers.
