1978...the VB Commodore...“a new Holden, so advanced it will challenge all your ideas about Australian cars”.
.
And it did. The first generation of a long, and soon to be iconic, line of Holden Commodores, it became Australia’s number one selling car in 1979. It really was “a new kind of car for Australia”, with its engineering sophistication and value for money also earning its place as Wheels Car of the Year in 1979.

Who else remembers this outstanding moment in Australian motoring?

Production of the Holden HQ totalled 485,650 vehicles prior to replacement by the Holden HJ series in October 1974.

The Holden HQ series was produced at GMH plants in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and in Brisbane.

The Holden lion is a long standing image of great Australian motoring. However, it did not make its appearance until 1928 when the company hired sculptor George Rayner Hoff to create the logo.

The logo was actually created from the fable that tells of man observing a lion rolling a stone around, hence providing inspiration for the wheel.

Holden’s original logo was a depiction of a winged worker kneeling down in front of the factory.

I think many of us are happy with the change.
