The name may be gone but HOLDEN will not be forgotten.

1948 48 2 1 5

Way back in 1948,
a car rolled off the line.
The day Australia waited for,
November 29.

Ben Chifley was Prime Minister,
the Leader of the day.
He ushered in what soon became
an icon here to stay.

It gained a reputation
being rugged on the land.
But Holden couldn’t build enough
to satisfy demand.

People bought them 'Sight Unseen',
from any Dealer who.
Would let them be the leader of,
that quickly growing queue.

And then in 1951,
a coupe ute was released.
It soon became the 'Tradesman’s Choice',
the others were 'Deceased'.

1953 was when
the 'Air-ride' came along.
Though still a '48 2 1 5'
it sang an 'FJ' song.

It came with telescopic shocks
and wider rear springs too.
For as the name implies my friend,
'They Rode the Air with You'.

Now some say: "FX Holden"
and some say: "Saints Alive”.
But a 'Rose will always be a Rose'
like '48 2 1 5'!!
