The cars of Australia could be the subject of another thread.
Indeed Sir. Oz is where US, Euro and Asian cars (as well as their own native models) come together in a unique kind of blend. Even the trucks are a mix between Euro Cabovers and American Bull noses. Its kinda different to other Countries in that regard.

Some of the vehicles in Australia are like the animals who have evolved for a unique environment..

Like you said.. The trucks for example.. and utility /pick up trucks with large engines for the distances which have to be covered.. and the harsh terrain..

Had a good night in the ships bar on a ferry years ago with a couple of Oz road train drivers.. Tough cookies but interesting stories or very long haul driving..
