Shannons is proud to present a very special car show dedicated to the history of Holden, to be held in WA on 13 December 2020. With this year marking the cessation of the iconic Aussie car brand, it’s an appropriate time to celebrate every model that made Holden Australia’s favourite car for a generation.
The venue is the former site of City Motors Holden, 505 Newcastle Street, West Perth, where organiser James McDonald is attempting to curate a display featuring one of every Holden model built in Australia. Not only that, Western Australian enthusiasts can participate for free, with a parking area set aside for anything that fits the bill. Holden Specials, Kingswoods, Commodores, Statesmans, Toranas, Geminis and even Camiras; if it was built by Holden, then its welcome.
Everyone has a Holden story; not just die-hard enthusiasts, and James is keen to capture those memories. Motoring podcasters Nick Dicembre, Simon Travaglini and Todd Brinkworth from Torque n Power will not only broadcast their 100th show from the event, but will be on hand to record those Holden stories, whether they’re about the car you bring or a memory that would otherwise be lost to history.
James is expecting a huge array of vehicles that are likely to appeal to any enthusiast, not just one-eye Holden supporters and is keen for Western Australians to put their Aussie-built Holdens on display. There is no entry fee for participants or spectators, with gold coin donations welcome and all proceeds going to men’s mental health charity Movember.
Food and beverage vans will be on site and gates open from 9:30. It is a council requirement that Gone but Not Forgotten is a strictly non-smoking event.
