Killabakh resident and self-proclaimed car nut, Jim Hull, has had a lifelong passion for Holden cars and owns two prized early models, a 1952 FX sedan and a 1955 FJ business sedan.

“Despite the age of the vehicles, we love ‘em and just keep hold’en on,” Jim said.

The 70th birthday of the iconic Holden car will be celebrated with a display of vintage vehicles spanning the decades from Jim’s 1950s classics, through to the  Commodore. 

As part of the celebration, Harrington writer and Holden enthusiast, Joel Wakely, will be attending, selling and signing copies of his acclaimed book The Passion for Holden.

Killabakh’s ‘A Day in the Country’ will be held on Saturday, September 1.
