Vale Australian manufacturing

With local vehicle production set to come to an end in October, Wheels is producing an online series celebrating our rich manufacturing history.

We’ll chart the rise and fall of Aussie automotive manufacturing in five-year intervals, starting with the release of the first Holden in 1948. Our final piece will go online in the same week as our onceproud industry shutters its doors. We’ll look at the industry’s highs and lows, the people who shaped it, and the influence it’s had on our culture. Join us at Wheelsmag.com.au as we journey through 69 years of the Australian automotive industry.
