On the way to work this morning I was briefly behind a shiny Holden SS ute, the sort of pristine muscle car that never carries any cargo larger than a bottle of Jim Beam, and never experiences a dirt road unless it hits a particularly well-developed pothole. They can be seen all the time on the streets of Perth, usually driven by very young tradesmen who have suddenly started earning serious money, or middle-aged managers whose mid-life crises have taken a rather tragic turn.

However there were two things about this car which, taken together, made it stand out:

1) It had a pale grey Apple logo in the rear window

2) It was painted a gleaming, flawless white.

Sweet merciful crap, I thought. It's an iUte.

Maybe it's just me, but the idea of a nerd muscle car is deeply, deeply disturbing.

Wow - time to visit Perth again. Haven't seen any iUtes in Sydney yet, we tend to have those annoying Smartcars instead...
