If you are a Classic Holden HR fan you will want to see this video and perhaps buy the DVD. It’s not everyday you find a song and music video about a HR Holden. Its by a band called The Bobkatz. They have a new single, ‘The Old HR’ complete with music video. It’s worth a listen. Robert Mackay & Garry Koehler make up The Bobkatz and are based in Hervey Bay, Queensland

The re-worked HR offered a sleeker, more modern profile, plusher cabin trimmings and improved performance. It pioneered the standard fitment of front seat belts, windscreen washers, padded sunvisors, exterior rear view mirror and shatterproof rearview mirror. It included the most powerful Holden engine so far, the 186S, the first automatic choke and the first 4-speed manual floorshift option. Limited slip differential was also optional.
