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
Twin turbo V8 FX that runs an 8 second quarter mile
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
Fairly sure this is the same car as above but I’ve been wrong before
Dave Keen’s Holden FJ
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
The feature these photos are from can be found here
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
*I should do a
second Morris Minor Theme Tuesday shouldn’t I?
