I photographed this excellent FC Holden Panel Van on 11th June 2011 at the Cooly Rocks On Festival at Coolangatta in south east Queensland. The FC Holden is, in my opinion, the best looking of all the models Holden has produced. It was manufactured between 1958 and 1960.

Canon 450D with Canon 18-55mm IS lense. 1/200 sec, ISO 400, f10, -0.7 steps, 24mm focal length…

    Great capture of this gem Keith, Can’t say I’ve ever seen a Holden, so will be a real treat if I ever come across one. >Ron<

  • Thanks very much Ron… Holden cars have been around here in Aussie since 1948 and are still going strong today.. There has always a traditional rivalry here between Holden owners and Ford owners…
