What is wrong with right hand drive in Australia?

The set up/body is ideal if it were not on an ancient truck.

Funny thing is I spotted the window controls on the wrong (for the US) door. I never even saw the steering wheel until after I was trying to figure out why the buttons. [emoticon]

Right hand drive not allowed in Australia, unless 30& years old.

Well, pulling into the portico at the country club may raise a few eyebrows but otherwise I am sure it suits it's purpose.

Nice truck. It would change the world as to blind side backing. We prefer the outer sites in a loop, this would solve that problem. In the US anyway.


Nope. Unless it is duel control.
Just for snots and grins, park your car on the wrong side of street, put a car in front of you, then check your sightlines as you pull out. Want to do that every time?



"......Unless it is duel control."

Definition of "Duel Control": The DW offering "how to" *advice* (LOL) on driving techniques, maneuvers, etc.
.........The duel to see who is really in control..[emoticon]

LOL. I was thinking about a steering wheel on both sides, like a Mack I bought real cheap. But I can see how that could be a issue with a nut behind either wheel.
