When 'Holden Days' was released, Don Loffler had no idea that he would receive many new images from readers generally and, in particular, from the relatives and friends of those whose images appear in the book. In addition, he kept locating new images through his own research. 'Holden Snapshots' is the result of all this. 'Having written the official history of Holden ('Heart of the Lion: the 50-year history of Australia's Holden') and then completed a PhD and related book ('Special: the untold story of Australia's Holden') on the origins of the Holden from deep within General Motors culture, I don't always rush to read more material on Holdens ...unless it is yet another of Don Loffler's wonderful books. Like his previous five beautifully written and illustrated productions, 'Holden Snapshots' is full of yarns about early model Holdens and their place in the lives of individuals and the broader cultural tapestry. By giving the old cars he features this full context, Don brings history to life in the most accessible and readable way.' - Dr John M.
Wright (PhD), eminent Australian motoring journalist and author of landmark Holden history, 'Heart of the Lion', and the ground-breaking research book, 'Special: The untold story of Australia's Holden'.
