We al­ways hoped it would never come to this – the fi­nal shut­down of lo­cal pro­duc­tion from Ford last year and Toy­ota and Holden in 2017. But it has. Aw­ful though that prospect is, there is also a great deal to cel­e­brate, namely decades of in­dus­trial and so­cial his­tory. Over the last 10 months, we’ve been fea­tur­ing icons from the Holden cat­a­logue, be­gin­ning with the 48-215 back in Jan­uary this year. Last is­sue we pro­duced a Monaro spe­cial and the one be­fore a To­rana cel­e­bra­tion.

This time around it’s the turn of Com­modore, the fac­tory’s long­est-run­ning name­plate. Glenn Tor­rens, our res­i­dent Com­modore nut, has done the his­tory, while we cel­e­brate the wider leg­end with own­ers.

To the many peo­ple who helped put this to­gether, many thanks, and may your en­gines al­ways start first time!
