Just verifying.

 

That's not a "wild cat", like a lynx or a bobcat or a mountain lion.


That's a wild house cat. Felis catus gone feral.

 

Yes, feral cats.

 

We don't have any other cats, our fauna have no protection from these agile predators. Most hunters have ZERO mercy for a feral cat (or even a pet tabby in the bush).

Big push here for all domestic cats to have no outside access.

 

And then.....there is this .....our 'Big Foot' -

It's a Holden, but has a grill that's familiar to me as an American car. Just can't place it at this moment!

, maybe make it L/H drive and poke a V8 in it (BIG BLOCK) 

 

  could be a fun grocery getter

they did come with a V8,on occasion, and the above examples certainly did .......

  ..... but mostly a straight 6; and a 3 speed column shift, or 4-on-the-floor manual transmission, in some cases a tri-matic auto transimssion. Mostly for delivery and/or tradesmen, but also as a surfing wagon with a mattress in the back and board racks on the roof. Most had a bench seats although the examples above probably had bucket seats. Great as a grocery getter, but useless as a family conveyance.

 

Holden was a General Motors subsidiary.  GMH :)

Must be why it looked familiar, Chevy maybe?

The article doesn't confirm that they are in use, but they certainly look like they could be,

 

Yes around $1.90 a litre (Imperial) presently.

They all made sense - even though I had not heard most of them - until I got to the last one.

 

Grouse lippy

 

phil_11-26-2008_sharp-tailed_grouse.jpg Lippy?

 

Did they misspell gross? Or, like so many other things, does grouse means something else in Oz?
