You Might Be an Australian If:

Your truck has dual tanks, but your beer cooler has the greater capacity.

You fill up your beer cooler more often than your fuel tanks.

You must have a truck in order to carry your barbecue around.

Highways are interesting, but roads are where you find them...

Having a spouse is nice, but a good dog and a box of shells is essential.

When someone tells you to check your wallet - you think of the one with your darts in it first.

Your bumpers weigh more than some imported trucks.

Beer is not considered genuine unless there is yeast silt in the bottle bottom.

So true - I might add a few more.

Anything less than 8 cylinders is considered a lawn mower.

The amount of stickers on the back of your truck is an indication of how well traveled you are......

Our native emblem isn't just to look at - it is probably dinner.

Your dog knows the way home from the pub probably better than you do.

Your dogs life revolves around "knock off", and shut time at the pub.

A truck gets no respect unless its a Ford or a Holden (a minor amount of respect can be paid to 40 year old Toyotas with 3 million miles on them).

A "good stereo" isn't one that can smach your windows, its one that can pick up a radio signal 300 miles from the transmitter.

That´s a good one, you could also add:

- If you know more names of poisonous animals than non-poisonous ones.

- "Goin´to the lake" includes crocodiles.

- Think all "trains" are made by Mack.

- Have spent more than five minutes wondering if you live in a continent or an island.

You hear the term "TOPLESS" bar, and wonder if there is any other kind.

You think of a knife as at least a half meter long. Anything less is a box cutter...

When you hear the term "BUSH" you think immediately of jungle rather than Shiela's

You think of Croc's in terms of chicken fried or roasted.

Bad news is often couched in cricket or socker terms.

I strongly agree with the eight cylinder idea, except when the 6 cylinder is a suitable sized CAT:
C7 in anything F650 or higher - minmum hp is 300
C12 in any medium/large truck
C15 or C16 in any prime mover - must have 500hp or more.

You keep really important things in your glovebox, like

Saches of salt, pepper and tomato/BBQ sauce (Ketchup).

Monogrammed napkins from Hungry J*cks/McD etc.

A stash of KFC moist towlettes.

Old cigarette foil papers incase a fuse blows...

Emergency supplies of half empty boxes of matches.

You think people from Britain make funny noises...

You can't imagine a Crayfish less than a foot long.

You never go fishing without a rifle.

When you see a tractor trailer rig with two trailers behind it - you assume it's on the way to hitch up the rest of its load.
