Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Which Was the Coolest Holden Concept Car?

For a division that built distinct production cars for nearly 70 years, Holden – which GM officially terminated over the weekend – built surprisingly few concept cars. The Australian arm of General Motors missed out on the space-age Motoramas and never benefited from the Seventies largess of the Bill Mitchell era. But that’s not to say it never showcased its own wild, not-for-production flights of fancy, some of which may have been the coolest concept cars ever built.

More than 20 years after Holden began production of the 48-215, the first Holden-badged vehicle from General Motors Australia, the division built its first concept car, the 1969 Hurricane.

A history of Australian auto heritage in the concepts of Holden.
