Yes, it was a rally car, then a rally school car between 1995 & 2003.

Does anyone else have any to show?
David, I worked on that car at Bathurst in 1991 & 1992. If I can be of any help send me a PM

Saw one of Bob's cars on a trailer at Maccas at Gundagai last Sunday night.

Two blokes with it but not quite game enough to say g'day!

What does Bob look like anyway?

Punter, what shape/model was it and what ivery was it wearing?

Bob Holden is not too tall, average build and well into his '70s, but he looks younger.

You know what David, I was so shagged after a long day playing cricket, I can't even remember!

I'd say it was an Escort, primarily white with some red detail, with Bob Holden across the top of the screen.

There was a very distinguished curly grey haired gent in Maccas dressed in an old pair of blue overalls; I guess that was Bob...

Punter, Bob Holden does have curly grey hair and he still races his Mk II Escorts in Historic Group C.

I am told that there is a picture of my car on page 205 of The Great Race volume 9, the 1989 edition and there is another picture of my car on page 103 of volume 12, the 1992 edition. I don’t have either of these books, but if you do, I would really appreciate it if you could scan a copy and email it to david@edicustoms.com.au

I've managed to get some photos of the car at Bathurst in various years, but not one photo from an ATCC round. Anyone, anyone........?

OK, no promises, but somewhere I might have the original press kit for that car's debut at Bathurst in 1984 - is that the same car?

It was the car that went on to be a rally car. It was in pretty sad shape last I saw - you'll have a good job ahead of you.

If you contact Chevron Publishing, they might be able to help with pictures. If I get a chance, I'll see if I can scan those pix from The Great Race.

Hooray - another car survives!

Bob Holden built several Sprinters, the first one debuted at Bathurst in 1984 and is rumoured to be the first issued with a CAMS logbook for Group A.

My car spent a couple of years as a standard street car and was converted to a Group A touring car by Bob Holden in 1986 and did Sandown and Bathurst that year. In 1995 it was converted to a rally Car and later became a rally school car.

Since 2003 it has been undre restoration to it's Group A racing trim. I haven't set a dealine or a timetable for it's completion. A lack of spare time and mechanical ability mean it's going to be a while.

I have pics of a couple of different Toyotas, also taken at Amaroo Park...

The first one is the Full/Adcock unit, which eventually became the car Morris/Full took to a class victory in 1991... with the shortest victory speech ever... "Dude"
