Cars We Used To Drive

Author: Don Loffler

Publisher: Wakefield Press

In Cars We Used To Drive, Don Loffler, well known Holden author, reveals his lifelong interest in all makes of cars on Australian roads in the years 1946 to 1966. Don Loffler has assembled a remarkable collection of 280 colour slides and black and white photographs of owners and their cars, from Austin to Zeta.

Makes like Morris, Vanguard, Wolseley, Oldsmobile and Hudson, which have long since disappeared from the new car scene, but were once household names, feature.

The images record the social history of an era very different from today, when people were content to sit on travelling rugs by the roadside to enjoy a picnic lunch brought from home, perhaps with the addition of sausages and chops cooked over a small open fire. Caravan holidays were also popular at a time when motels were not yet in vogue.

Older readers can be assured of a great nostalgia trip into times they remember, while younger people will gain an insight into what it was like living in those times.

The establishment boys: The other side of Kerry Packer’s cricket revolution

Author: Barry Nicholls

Publisher: Wakefield Press

Almost 40 years ago, there were two national Australian cricket teams existing in seemingly parallel universes: the glamorous, ‘rock-star’ players of World Series Cricket run by media mogul Kerry Packer; and the traditional Australian Test team made up of young, poorly paid men who represented their country in the establishment international Test arena.

Incredibly, four decades later we know more than ever about the characters and plot twists of the WSC saga, thanks to a commercial media-driven fascination with magnate Kerry Packer and the household name cricket heroes of the day. But the story of the players who stuck solid to the Australian Cricket Board is largely forgotten or simply unknown.
