    A few more. The 32 Tourer is a great find and more so if it was today. The 34 coupe went to USA apparently within a few days of finding it. All found in early 70's

    In the early ‘80s I had the good fortune to spend about a week in Oz, mostly in the Sydney area. On a Sunday I somehow found out about a car show and went to it.

    There I saw a Holden Ute of that vintage and I was smitten! Obviously I have never forgotten it/them, but never really made an effort to acquire one.....figuring they are both scarce and expensive. Nonetheless, one of my favorite cars.

    Would like to see more pics of the Olds sloopers we didn't get that !!!
     
  15. There are two good threads started by @oz40 ( Tom ) . Aussie Icon - the UTE & Aussie Icon - SLOPERS.
     
  16. We didn't get "sloopers" either- just Slopers!
