Crazy Concept Car Reborn

Melbourne-based car manufacturer, Holden, has re-created their first-ever 1969 concept car, the Holden Hurricane. It's been over forty years since the first debut in 1969, but a group of Holden workers have made it a special project of theirs to restore the revolutionary concept, an endeavor which they have been working on since 2006.

 
The finished vehicle will be showcased in the Motorclassica Car Show in Melbourne, AU where it is sure to turn a few heads and jog a few memories. In its day, the Hurricane not only looked the part of a futuristic vehicle, but packed several ground-breaking technological features that are commonly used in vehicles today. Though you would hardly recognize them after forty years of development, features included a rear-view camera via closed-circuit TV and turn-by-turn navigation which relied on magnets placed in the road, rather than today’s GPS technology.
 
I’m almost disappointed that the future didn’t lead to a nation of Holden Hurricane drivers rather than a move to small sized hybrids. I’m especially fond of its fighter-jet cockpit style entry and Knight Rider turn signal. Even though the design didn’t quite carry over, the Hurricane did lead the way in many vehicle technologies we enjoy today, and for that I’m certainly thankful.
