And remember: proper ute-hoonage is your responsibility, no one else’s. You must hoon your ute daily and aggressively for best results.
Burnout the rainbow, my friends. Tires specifically made to emit voluminous clouds of candy-colored smoke are a glorious thing.
Australia’s most infamous, grueling race—the Bathurst 1000—concluded with not one, not two, but three Holden Commodores on the podium. Say, do you also own a Holden which is also capable of destroying the evil scourge known to man as “tires?” Please, do some burnouts. It is time.
There’s a maybe-supercharged V8 explosion coming from the southern shores of wonder, a ZR1-familiar LS9 stuck nose-up into the front of a Holden Commodore, which is Australian for “Chevrolet SS.” It’s the big boom time now, maybe, baby.
You gotta track yer ute in Australia, mate!
Welcome to Paper Jam, a new feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
Today, Craig Lowndes claimed his sixth ever Bathurst 1000 win with help from codriver Steven Richards. It was also a thirtieth win for Holden at the Australian endurance classic, and it came after an unbelievable six-car melee for the lead at the end. How is this man so fast? Let’s hop onboard his car and see.
My Aussie friend Dave is a real muscle car fanatic who doesn’t take kindly of some electric car claiming to be the fastest sedan on the planet. To prove Elon Musk wrong, he went for a drag race between a Tesla and a V8 Supercar.

So you know how everyone's going batshit about the ambiguous color of a dress? Because now that everyone in the world can now talk about the same shit at once, we're going bonkers? Well, Holden's quick-acting ad team may have made the best advertising-bandwagon-jumping response yet:
That's not gone well, has it?
As a "tribute" to the iconic two-door station wagons of Holden Australia's yesteryear, Red Bull and Triple Eight Engineering have cooked up this insane shooting brake with 705 BHP, full racing suspension, and... surfboard racks.
The music! The clothes! The hair! If you loved the 80s, this Holden Barina commercial might just be too 80s even for you. And if you're glad that particular decade has been consigned to the dustbin of history, well you might just find this the stuff of nightmares. This just may be the 80est of 80s Suzuki Swift…
GM's Australian automaker Holden, famous for beastly "El Camino"-style cars with pickup beds and massive engines, is shutting its doors in 2017. But before the company goes out of business, they're reportedly cranking out their fastest-ever utility car.
An Australian man is selling his 1999 Holden Barina Limited Edition City. Rather than park it on the side of the road with a "For Sale" sign, David Johns used his experience as a digital ad director to create a commercial that "redefines" how to sell a beater.
Whenever we write about a new General Motors recall — which is often, these days — one of you jokers inevitably says "Wouldn't it be faster to make a list of GM cars that HAVEN'T been recalled?" Well, after going through today's infographic, it seems the Aussie Pontiacs are safe so far.
