Earlier this week a sad day was marked for Australia with the news that General Motors will be retiring the Holden brand this year.
General Motors, an American automotive giant which owns the Holden brand, revealed it would axe the 164-year-old company as part of a global move away from right-hand drive cars and amid Holden’s lowest monthly sales for 72-years.
Holden is an iconic Australian brand with one of the biggest Dealer networks in the country and the social and economic effect of this development should not be underestimated.
For over 50 years Canowindra icon Charlie McCarron, who passed away in 2017, ran the Canowindra Motors Holden dealership in Gaskill St and collected over 50 classic holden cars in his time before auctioning the cars off in 2016.
General Motors has announced that Holden will honour all warranties, servicing offers made at time of sale and recall and safety-related issues.
