    Ryan,

    "Lowtech" aka Marc, is a guy from switzerland. And, yes you´re right, he´s a great photographer. Unfortunately I never had the chance to meet him.

    Cheers
    Sven

    Marc is a good dude, cool guy, great photographer. That Chevy Ute is a trip, at first I thought someone hacked up a coupe to build it.

    The ute was built by Adam and Josh Jardine. Adam owns Burleigh Roadsters down on the Gold Coast and imports Brookville panels, and builds the '32 Roadster bodies in his shop. Adam, Josh and Adams wife Nicky are some of THE best people i've met in Hot Rodding, every time i see them at the swap meets or drop by the shop Nicky and Adam are more than happy to talk shit and hang out.

    Really good folks, great cars (The roadster is Adams) and i think we need more people like them in the Aussie hot rod scene.

    Edit: Should add Josh is only a young bloke like myself, i think hes 20 or 21? But there is still a few of us youngsters keeping the traditional stuff alive!

    I've never seen one ute around here, I think that finding one here would be like winning lottery! :(

    Yeah, I'm sort of in love with all things '49-'51 Chev and that Ute is at the top of the list.

    I agree, so often they look like a very poorly designed afterthought. This one really looks great.

    Very smooth Kustom, great work Joshua!
    Met your Mum at Coolie Rocks this year, a very nice lady and until today's post, perhaps your biggest fan.

    You gotta see this thing up close, Josh has done a great job on it. All the trad kustom touches like shaved drip rails and rounded corners, filled seams etc. It's a very cool ride, and the effort put in is a real credit to him and Adam. The utes can look clumsy really easy, but this one nails it.

    Like others I love the 49-54 chevys, especially wagons, but I have wanted a 49-52 Ute for a long long time. If someone knows of one available in the US let me know. When I win the lottery I plan to take a trip down under and bring one or two home (especially the sweet black one that shows up here on this site occassionally)

    they're getting rare even here in Australia. I have seen a what's left of some under trees out in the scrub. They were mostly bought by farmers and farmers didn't take great care of them.

    I had always thought that utes of this era weren't really worth customizing. Until I saw Joshua's. It blew my mind.

    Looking at this one makes me guilty for not dragging one out of a gully a few years ago when I had the opprtunity to do so.

    Not only farmers, All tradesmen, roof tilers, plumbers, brickies, chipies, even the dunny man.
    Pipe/gutter & ladder rack was an obvious option.
