The FJ shall rise again

Post by Neville Briggs » Tue Dec 31, 2013 2:54 pm

I was dismayed to hear that Holden was ceasing making the iconic " Australian " cars in Australia. I thought that I could help out by setting up a budget holden in Australia thyat could easily compete with any cheap Chinese model.

I came up with this little beauty. easily made of local materials. Plenty of spare parts. And Australian made.

As you can see simple and clean upholstery lines. No silly computerised clutter to go wrong at great expense.

Also, simple ,direct and renewable energy system for the power drive. With cool and free ventilation suitable for Australian conditions. No emissions.

I like the no emissions bit nev all ok so long as you do not take the dog in the car with you.

I suppose if you had a dog that would bark in the car, that would class as an emission. :roll:

G/day Neville,
I came across a very early model Holden in the middle of nowhere on a station in the Ashburton a couple of years ago. The body was in pretty good condition and the engine an gearbox were near by. From memory there didn't seem to be much missing at all - if anything.

The strange thing about it was that it was well of any tracks.

Cheers Terry
