HOLDEN DAYS From The Original 48-215 'FX' To The 1966 HR Author Don LofflerBinding Hard Cover Book Condition New Number of pages 288 pages Number of Photos; Illustrated with over 100 images Dimensions 230 x 210 mm Publisher Published by Wakefield Press November 2012 ISBN 9781743051153 Availability IN STOCKDon Loffler has now written five outstanding books on Australia's Own Holden. Unlike many motoring enthusiasts, Loffler's interest in the cars comprises a deeper interest in Australian social and cultural history. For the first time, he looks at models made between 1956 and 1967 and explains I why photos of the early cars still predominate: "I do not think it is due to the fact that this is my first venture into territory beyond those first two models, but that it is rather explained by the fact that after the FJ, the novelty of acquiring a car became less dramatic. Consequently, people tended to photograph their new cars less often.
" If Holden Days was all in pictures with brief captions, it would still be a book to cherish, but Don Loffler uses individual memories to create a rich social history of Australia from 1948 right through until now as Holden owners relive their stories.' - Dr John M. Wright (PhD)
This fifth Holden book by Don Loffler is a new initiative. It extends beyond the first two Holden series, the 48-215 'FX' and the FJ, and comprises a chapter on each of the first ten Holden series, finishing with the 1966 HR.
Contains over 100 images, all from the era in which the cars were in their heyday
