Holden honoured by Australia Post

Holden’s long history in Australia is being honoured on a set of five postage stamps released by Australia Post today. The five stamps depict iconic cars from Holden’s 73-year history as a manufacturer in Australia, from 1948-2020. The $1.10 stamps feature ‘Australia’s Own Car’, the 1948 Holden 48-215; the 1963 EH Premier; Australia’s answer to the muscle car, the 1968 HK Monaro GTS; the 1971 HQ Kingswood Ute and the 2006 VE Commodore SS V.

The man who saved Holden four times in 10 years, but was beaten in the end

COMMENT Former Holden boss Mark Reuss, now the global head of General Motors product development, is too humble to admit it, but he saved Holden – and gave the company an opportunity to pull itself out of a nosedive – on at least four significant occasions in the past 12 years. When he was the boss of Holden from 2008 to 2009, he brokered the deal between Detroit and the Australian Federal Government to install the Cruze small car on the production line alongside the locally-made Commodore.
