AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

That FJ is gorgeous! The classic styling is timeless and the pastels are beautiful, too. The old Holdens are great looking, although I like the HQ Monaro, with much better styling that the US GM cars in the 1970s. Nice capture!

That is one cool car!

How I wish they still made cars with such class and character.
The first car I remember (and loved) was my dad's 1957 Buick.

Oh I need that car. I have just bought a little 1950s blue and yellow picnic set in a case and all. :-))

I can remember riding around in some late classics that I didn't appreciate at the time but would love to have now.
Nice capture Gemma!

Love old cars! Were Holdens made in Australia?

Sweet, what a beautiful car.

At first glance I thought there was a critter on the roof of the car...then I figured it out.

What a car! Years ago the young danish men also put a foxtail on the radio aerial ;-)
