Umm, it's Australia I think there is a conversion. There used to be
a kid from Au. that gamed with us on UT and we discussed cars a good bit
and I remember him calculating a conversion to translate horse power
between the two of us.
Thanks for the info/link.
I think I like the Holden better. Though the first third/front of the
vehicles are quite similar, I think the Holden retains the "car-look"
better than the slab-sided Ford Falcon ute. And the flared-up "cab"

I see a market for these vehicles now, especially with the empty-nest

why not one of these? You'd retain the open bed to haul bulky things
and I'd guess you have enough suspension to pull small trailers, but
without the lumbering size/poor mpg of a full sized pickup. Sure you
wouldn't be able to haul and tow thousands and thousands of pounds,
but how often do most people do that? So there you have it: a vehicle
capable of hauling furniture, big-box store goodies, and yet a nice,
well-handling, comfortable cruiser for the day-to-day commute or long,
