Book; The Passion for Holden: A celebration of the Australian icon 1856-2020 Commemorative Edition - Joel Wakely
This product is currently sold out.
In February 2020 General Motors announced that Holden, the iconic marque cherished by generations of Australians, was at its end.
Joel Wakely is one of those Australians. He has worked with and raced with Holden cars almost his entire life, owning several significant and some very rare models. He knows Holdens like he knows the back of his hand, and he knows many other passionate Holden lovers like himself.
In this commemorative book, he gathered together dozens of fascinating stories about many of the models Holden have produced since 1948. Joel tells the whole story of Holden, from the saddlery set up by J. A. Holden in the 1850s, to Henry Holden's car body-building of the 1910s, the sale of the company to General Motors, the determination to produce the all-Australian car, the on-track successes, and the highlights of 69 years of manufacturing all-Australian vehicles.
With contributions from dozens of Holden enthusiasts about their myriad cars plus hundreds of photographs, many never seen in print before, this is a Holden book like no other, a book from the heart that goes deep into the passion that Holden engenders.
