Description

Meet local author Joel Wakely for the launch of his latest book The Passion for Holden at Harrington Library

About the book...

"THE PASSION FOR HOLDEN" book is not only about the history of Holden together with the challenges the company faced throughout seven decades of manufacturing in Australia. It also highlights 48 special car stories being demonstrated by owner and or by association. To make the book complete a unique collection of over 300 visions, selected from over 500 prints of production, prototype, experimental and modified race car models, including 90 copyright images provided by Holden’s Corporate Affairs Department through the Companies Archives held by the State Library of South Australia. Others by the Hobby Holden owners, Autopics motor collection, Photos by courtesy of the Gosford Classic Car Museum and many others from the Author’s personal archives collection. Many of the photos featured have not previously been displayed and were selected by the author to give a visual display of classic Holden cars manufactured in Australia between1946 -2017.

Regardless of the brand of car you favour this book will appeal to those who have a passion for cars, and in particular to any Holden person. Some like to drive a good car, while others simply admire them, enthusiasts collect while many modify and restore their model of choice. Whatever your persuasion the choice of Holden is more popular than others made evident by the membership count of recognised, Holden car clubs throughout Australia. This home grown Australian manufactured Holden is the most popular and sought after brand by car club enthusiasts and in general.
