Theme Tuesdays: Holden FJ/X

1

Being upside down to the Holden Fj/X’s place of origin (Australia) I don’t know a lot about these cars. However when my friend Ollie sent me one last week I quickly went to Google looking for more examples.

As it turns out much like Morris Minors* these cars can really be done any which way. Gasser, Sled, Street Machine, Rat Rod, the list goes on…

This is the one Ollie sent in, don’t know much about it but white letters, truespokes, and a bit of tuck go a long way around here

If you’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road you’re no doubt familiar with this car, the production company bought it off the owners below

Bad ass little drag ready Holden

Another drag prepared example with a bit more of a gasser vibe

Interestingly enough in my search I end up on the H.A.M.B quite a bit

It’s crazy how similar these cars are to American cars of the same era, cars around the world were cooler in the 50s

They take well to a healthy roof chop and ride height adjustment
holden-fj-10
Fairly sure this is the same car as above but I’ve been wrong before

Only makes sense that at least one picture from today’s post comes from an Australian parts supplier

This particular FJ is known as the ‘Draggin Coupe’ and was first built in the 60s, then lost in the 70s before being rebuilt last year

This Holden, which visually might by my favourite, was Australian Street Machine of the year in 94

It looks like a riot to drive!

Round things out with the Holden Efigy, which is a homage to the FJ built on a Corvette pan

Great looking car, if nothing more than a one-off creation

Cant argue with how great it looks laid out
