Inside this month's Unique Cars gearbox


Classic Carlectables has released the first vehicle in its Holden heritage range, the EH utility. Fittingly, it is decked out in Nasco branding and perfectly mimics a parts delivery ute from back in the day. It features opening bonnet and doors, a detailed interior, including the rear venetian blind and a 149ci engine. This 1-18 scale die-cast model is an absolute must for any fan of the iron lion or Australian motoring history. At $269 it’s also the cheapest EH ute you’ll ever own.

This embroidered tartan blanket proudly displaying an old-school Holden logo is just the thing you need for all events. It’s a good size too, 200 x 90 cm, so there is room for everyone and being made of an acrylic fabric it can be plonked down on just about any surface without getting damaged. And when you have finished with it, fold it up and pop it back into its hanger package so it’s ready for next time. Limited numbers left at $20.
