Me and Rusty Hoe

There is a new woman in my life. The first car I saw I bought. There is no messing around with me these days. I used to be indecisive but now I’m not too sure.

Anyway it is a 1985 Ford Laser ‘Ghia’, rusty red with the word ‘slut’ keyed onto the door and the word ‘hoe’ on the bonnet.

Apparently the teenage daughter of the owner fell out with some of the local guys. Nevertheless it was cheap at GBP 280.00 and despite the minor oil leak and obscenities in the paint work it seems to go fine.

I will be putting a picture up of Rusty soon. We are off together to Arthur’s Pass National Park in a couple of days (hopefully giving a lift to a couple of other backpackers). I had a car die on me the last time I was in Arthur’s Pass so fingers crossed for Rusty.

The World Buskers Festival is in town currently and is providing some very good entertainment. The funniest thing is this guy in a suit driving around town sitting on a motorised toilet giving away free toilet paper.

They are all a bit crazy down here in the South Pacific.
