What's more exciting than seeing one beautiful old restored Holden cruising down the highway, all spic and span, polished, in its' original state? Well not much really, unless you head to The Geelong All Holden Day, on Saturday 14th March at The Geelong Showgrounds.
You will be able to see lots of Holdens on display, with beautiful original interiors, polished paint work, and engines so clean you could eat off them. The Holdens line up for the Show and Shine, to be viewed, photographed and judged, with trophies handed out to the best cars - how the judges choose is beyond me, with so much time and money and love spent on these cars.
Head to the Geelong Showgrounds for a great family day out. You can expect to see Holden models like Chevy, Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobiles and more. Australian classics - FX and FJ Holden, my favourite - the EH Holden, HQ Utes, Toranas, and Geminis. You might even see the latest VE Commodores and HSV Muscle cars. With entertainment, food stalls and maybe even a famous race driver or two, the All Holden Day should be a good day out.
The Geelong All Holden Day is already recognized as one of the best Holden shows in Australia, with over 500 cars attending and thousands of visitors turning up to see some well loved, shiny Holdens.
The day will raise money for local charity "Our Women Our Children". Our Women Our Children is working to establish the Natal and Paediatric unit in the new emergency department of the Geelong Hospital.
The Geelong All Holden Day is proudly run by the Geelong FX-HZ Holden Car Club. This car club was established in 1976, the year of the HZ Holden.
