OUR COVER CARS
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!
