Holdens are GM's Australian answer to the Chevy. In 1964 the EH Holden was new... (and I was 7 years old..) By 1975/76 average EH Holdens could be easily found for about $500... (and I was now 17/18 years of age..) $500 was the right sort of money required for a first car in 1975/76.. As a result I found myself the owner of and passenger in, many EH Holdens of varying condition and varying values.

As a young kid I remember "lusting after" my first EH Holden. (it was a love affair.. For sure..)

Sticking a small block chevy v8 in to replace the Holden Red 6 Cylinder was a popular choice. (even though the modification requires "creation" of a chassis to replace the existing sub frames.)

But full restorations are also beautiful..
