Holden Heaven Australian Tour

G’day Holden Enthusiasts

We are excited to announce that Holden Heaven is hitting the road for a second tour of Australia. During the next 18 months, we’ll be visiting Holden Car Clubs, Holden Dealerships, Holden Events, Motoring Museums, Swap Meets and local businesses that support Holden enthusiasts. We encourage everyone to follow our Holden Heaven Blog for all the latest updates on our progress and photos from the road. Feature articles will be posted on the Holden Heaven site.

2011-12 Tour Itinerary

Leaving Canberra in late May, we’ll be heading through western NSW during June, outback QLD in July and back down the QLD coast during August and September. Holden Heaven will be touring Tasmania extensively from October to February, then head across to spend the majority of 2012 in WA and SA. During 2009, our first Australian Tour covered outback NSW, SA, NT and WA with many visits to NSW and Victoria during 2010.

Please let us know if you would like us to visit your club, event or business during our tour by contacting info@holdenheaven.com.au  Please allow a few days for a reply as we are often camped in the outback beyond wireless internet and mobile reception.

Cheers, Tim Miller | Managing Director | Holden Heaven

Join Holden’s Drive Safely This Easter Pledge

Holden Heaven is encouraging everyone in the entire Holden Enthusiasts Community to join the Holden pledge to drive safely this Easter. Don’t just do it for yourself, but all of your family, friends and fellow Holden Car Club members that would also be affected if you were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Check out the Easter Safety Pledge from HRT’s Garth Tander below, then join Holden on facebook to make your own pledge.

 

Holden Heaven Safety Pledge

“Last weekend marked the one year anniversary that our local Holden Car Club lost one of its longest-serving and most generous members, Scott Dunkley. This Easter, I pledge to drive my 1959 FC Holden station sedan safely for my wife and my two little boys (22 month old & 3 week old). I also pledge to encourage everyone in the entire Holden Enthusiasts Community to do drive safely for their family, friends and fellow Holden Car Club members.”  Cheers, Tim @ Holden Heaven.

New Photo Gallery | Riverina & Outback NSW

G’day Holden Enthusiasts

You’re invited to check out our new Holden Heaven photo gallery featuring the early model Holdens that we’ve spotted during recent tours of the Riverina & Outback NSW. We toured Lightning Ridge, Bourke, White Cliffs, Deniliquin & Echuca and found many classic Holdens still cruising around and many gracefully adorning the opal mining paddocks.

Check out our photo gallery featuring Holdens from the Riverina & Outback NSW.

Cheers, Tim.
