Incorporated in April 1987, the FE-HR Holden Owners Club ACT was originally created to cater for Holden enthusiasts that prefer the 1956-67 models introduced after the FX-FJ’s and before the first Holden factory V8’s. To celebrate our 25th year, membership was opened to anyone that has an interest in any Holden model, whether their vehicles are original daily drivers, restored show cars, modified street machines or modern vehicles.
The club hosts monthly club member activities and participates in local and interstate runs and displays with many of the Holden Car Clubs of Australia. The club has hosted several ACT Holden Day events and during Easter 2005, the 10th FE-FC Holden Nationals in Jindabyne NSW. The club also hosted the 9th ACT Holden Day in 2007 and the 8th HD-HR Holden Nationals in 2009.
Club membership is $50. The club also offers Online Membership for $10 for those Holden owners that live outside the Canberra region. Online Members receive electronic copies our monthly magazine via email.

More than 300 issues of our club magazine Pist’n’Broke have been published since the club formed in April 1987. Pist’n’Broke is distributed to Club members at each General Meeting and mailed to those members that are unable to attend. The Club also emails the magazine to those members with an email address. The Club exchanges Pist’n’Broke with many other Holden Car Clubs in Australia. Pist’n’Broke regularly includes committee member reports, national and local events calendar, holden classifieds, website reviews & feature articles.
Members can have access to a restricted members only group “FE-HR Holden Owner Owners Club ACT Inc.”. This group is made available to share constructive club related images and posts.
Our club members regularly participate in an online forum hosted by the FE-FC Holden Car Clubs of Australia. Our club has a members only section which features updates on the latest club news and events and allows members to discuss various topics. The Forum also features a wealth of restoration and modification advice, information on interstate member cars and reproduction parts, general classifieds and discussion.
Club members are available to provide newcomers with technical advice on authentic restorations and custom modifications. Some members have decades of mechanical experience and many club vehicles have received awards at local and national events. Over the years, our club magazine Pist’n’Broke has featured various technical articles providing members with advice.
In 1992, the club purchased an FB Holden station sedan and undertook a major project to convert into a trailer to promote the club at official events. The front section was removed and the wagon painted in club colours and signwriting. The club trailer was used for 15 years at club events and displays. A 2011-12 restoration has restored the trailer to gleaming roadworthy condition, and it has become a regular crowd pleaser at recent events.
