The annual SEMA Show has been the showcase for the future of aftermarket modification and custom car trends - but for 2022 both General Motors and Ford have opted to skip it.
It’s been a sad spectacle to watch as Holden signs around the country one by one were taken down from new car dealerships during 2021. At the Kerry Automotive Group in Darwin, the Holden signs had been set for removal at the end of last year, but for some reason or another remained in place in the early months of 2022. When members of the Classic Holden Car Club of the Northern Territory noticed the Kerry Holden signs were still standing, they swung into action, vowing to give the retiring local Holden dealer a fitting send off. Arrangements were made with Kerry Holden and the call went out to club members to be part of a weekend Holden car show at the dealership. Just for the day, the new and used cars on the Kerry Motors lot made way for what was the biggest single display of Holdens ever in the NT. Every model Holden except Commodore VC/T/P/X was represented, along with the new Chev Corvette and even a 1939 Vauxhall – with body by Holden. Images: Gary Beaumont
