Great pics, Alex. I spotted an A55 Cambridge in a couple of those shots, my old mans car for years. No wonder I turned to Holdens.

I saw the A55 too Colin.

A mate of mine's first car was an A50 Cambridge, that he bought in 6th year of high school (year 12 for the younger viewers Wink). It was mouse grey and we painted it light blue with a vacuum cleaner, the paint wasn't very shiny or smooth it was nice and thick Grin.

I remember driving it (slowly) up the New England Highway to Armidale. On the climb up Moombi from Tamworth, it was a close run thing to see if we could get to the top before the thing boiled. It seemed that every time you even approached a hill the temperature would start to rise in anticipation of what was coming Huh

It did have electric wipers, but they were Lucas..... did you know they invented intermitent wipers?

Just think, if Joseph Lucas had invented the internal combustion engine, the motor car would probably not exist Grin

I often wonder if in 1959 people saw a new FC and went 'ho-hum there's another new Holden they are so bland compared to the old '29 model A, now they had style!!' 

I know today if I see an old Holden I'll spin around and watch it pass, but even a new SS Commodore won't even rate a second glance from me.  Maybe it's just me??

I remember as a kid in the 70s the road was full of hotted up FJs and EHs, but I still took notice of the new Kingswoods etc then (I guess because we had one!).  Chargers and 2 door Falcons always stood out to me though!

Anyway enough rambling from me!
