All my life I've wanted to have a massive car collection. For most of that time however, fate and logic have had other ideas. Then there was all those years of marriage where the promise of buying more cars was dangled carrot-like in the future provided certain other objectives were achieved first. But regular readers of these ramblings know how well those plans ended up. Oh well.

So who watched Channel 10's Peter Brock telemovie this week? Want to know what I thought?

It was pathetic.

Let's imagine for a moment that this blog was about footy. In whatever alternate reality this is, I'm doing a reasonable job in whatever ametuer league I'm involved in after a few years off. I'm not playing A's but I've got a good mate who is; he even trained with a SANFL team when we were teenagers but didn't continue with them for reasons that I don't remember.

I bet that I would complain about the fact that Aussie Rules footy is about the only major sport in the world where rules change just about every season, and how changes made to top level competition don't always filter down to our level, and I'd discuss the merits of said rule changes. I’d make a big deal about how good it is to see the Bulldogs take the Premiership this year, despite the fact that this is professional level sport and that we should be well beyond the ‘everybody gets a turn’ part of our lives.

I feel like I need to talk about the new Ghostbusters movie. Now before we go too much further, I am not discussing the movie at all. Just the choice of hero car.

So for those who didn't know, recently I bought an old Holden ute. I've been toying with the idea of a project car for years, and have always been of the opinion that I'd get something after I'd bought a house (which will hopefully be towards the end of this year). But regardless, I was browsing various classified sites and spotted a white HZ ute. It was complete and cheap, and I wanted it. I spoke with the girlfriend who was most gracious with her response: if you want it then buy it.

We have the space and it's not like I'm spending our rent money on a car I don't need so I bought it and it was delivered to our place on the back of a tilt tray. Because buying cars that run and drive is overrated...
