29th All Holden Day
Tomorrow (3 August) the Hawkesbury Showground in New South Wales will rumble to the sound of 800 classic Holdens as the 29th All Holden Day kicks off.
According to Noel Eather, All Holden Day president, models being displayed range from Holden’s first car, the 48-215 and FJ models, Toranas, the V8 range of the late-1960s, the Kingswood, through to the latest Commodores and Holden Special Vehicles. It’s a celebration of the contribution Holden has made to Australia, he said.
“It’s is a great day to reminisce about the cars mum and dad might have ddriven, or even the ones you hated because your parents drove a Ford – you don’t have to be a Holden fan to attend,” Eather said. “This is a wonderful day of memories and fun for the family and a feast for enthusiasts.”
This annual display day was originally conceived to raise much needed funds for local community charity groups. Each year the profits continue to be distributed to groups including the local Rural Fire Service, the State Emergency Service, Ronald McDonald House, Camp Quality and Hawkesbury Wires.
