The Holden was the first car designed for Australia, rolling into our lives in 1948. Since then it has been rooted firmly in the Australian psyche. Holden models have defined generations. The FJ, the EH, the Torana, the Kingswood panel van, the Monaro, the ute – the name of each model is like a tuning fork for eras of Australian family, city and bush life. Almost every Australian has a Holden story. They are funny, sad, ridiculous, moving, and sometimes lurid.
