    What would you paint on your Combi?

    Two experiances leads me to this question..

    Not too long ago, I saw a combi van driving around my Dad's house that was painted like the bush. It was very detailed.. trees, lakes, animals, so on and so on. There wasnt a single part of it (other than the windows) that wasnt painted.

    The other experiance was during my year 12 at school, our School Chaplain had a combi van, and for a reason I cant remember, let us all paint it. Needless to say there was a few things on there that he had to paint over, but all in all we did a pretty good (but terribly random and strange) job.

    So, it brings me to my question. If you had a combi van to drive around in (and you were, lets face it, that way inclined..) what would you paint on it?

    I'd write "LINDA SUCKS" in huge letters across the sides, top, on the back, on the bonnet, everywhere, just so when I drove around, people would know that you suck. Even people in the sky. And I'd make the letters so big that it'd be the second man-made structure visible from the moon.

    So there.

    For those of us without corks round our hats, what exactly is a combi van?

    I've heard "Utes" (presumably short for "utility vehicle") spoken of on Neighbours, but this is a new one on me!

    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Ah, ta. We'd call it a camper van.

    Reckon I'd go basic matt black; it looks cool & also has the advantage of hiding the dirt for those of us of a lazy disposition!

    I didn't realise utes weren't used anywhere else but here. You don't know what you're missing out on BB.

    Probably something not expected on a combi, like someone chopping down a tree, or a war mural...
