Holden event as sign comes down
Words by Nadia Chapman

It will be the end of an era at Beecham Holden at Caboolture this weekend ahead of the removal of the iconic Holden signs after 37 years.

The proud second-generation family-owned dealership will say goodbye to its Holden signs in the next few weeks, but not after one last celebration.

Chris and Patty Beecham are hosting a celebratory event on Saturday, June 8 for Holden lovers far and wide.

The event aims to celebrate all things Holden and they are inviting the public to have their last photos taken with the iconic signage.

There will be many Holden car clubs and enthusiasts in attendance.

A silent auction will be held after the signage has been taken down, with all proceeds going to the Food Bank Qld Winter Appeal charity.

Chris and Patty say the removal of the signage doesn’t change anything else about the dealership.

“We will still have Certified Holden Servicing and Holden Parts (at the dealership),” they say.

“The Holden pylon will be replaced by our shiny new Beecham Suzuki pylon.

“The Holden fascia will be replaced by both Caboolture Nissan and Beecham Suzuki as part of a general dealership facility upgrade.”
