HSV first opened its doors to the public in February 1988 after unveiling the first ‘Walkinshaw’ at the Sydney Motor Show in 1987. The aim was simple - to maintain the tradition of Holden-based performance sedans originally established by Peter Brock’s Holden Dealer Team.
The company is now in an exciting era of vehicle enhancement and re-engineering.
Tour highlights will include the left to right conversion of Chevy trucks and Chevy Camaros imported from the US.
This is an exclusive Members only event and numbers are strictly limited.
Register now to see for yourself how the same entrepreneurial spirit that has driven HSV for over 30 years will continue to guide the company for the next 30 years and beyond.
