Post apocalyptic wastelands. The rumble of dinosaur engines. Armour plating and spiked metal. Leather and chains. Snarling bad guys and no hope for the future.

Here’s a fun game – fire up eBay on your browser, hit the automotive section and marvel at what you can find near the top when you set your search for ‘Cheapest price first’.

When it’s time for you and your humble Holden Barina to parts ways, there’s a few options. You can list your Barina locally in classifieds and even include a nice little side on picture to really get your phone ringing.

You could stick your Barina on the side of the road with a For Sale sign and a phone number, hoping for nibbles.
Or like we’ve discovered today, you can make an absolute epic video production about your Barina and expose it to the world..

My brother in law is a cowboy hat wearing, boot scooting, ‘if it ain’t a ute, I want nothing to do with it’ type of guy who loves his Bundy, shindigs round a bonfire, sliding sideways through the dirt in a Datto and anything at all to do with Lee Kernaghan. He loves the land, carby fed blocks and steak and chips. So when it comes to confusing technical questions, he usually refers them to me.

I wonder what beer he’s going to bring around as a thank you for this?…
