Holden: Historic Australian car brand loved by families and surfers

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-51531881

In the 1970s the company tapped into the carefree surfer lifestyle with Holden Sandman, a panel van that could be customised to store boards or even beds so surfers could snooze after a long session at the beach.

I was a teenager in the '70s but I was a lover, not a surfer.  :neutral:

Anyone who could afford to buy a new car like a Sandman wasn't a real surfer.   :crazy1:

My uncle Ron had a Sandman, bought new and it was his second car after the HG Monaro...only sessions he had were rooting and smoking pot in the back down the Bunbury back beach :stoned: :D

@eye30  it's "Aussie"...ozzie was a puppet Ostrich on the "Hey Hey it's Saturday" TV show :head_knock:

Maybe that's what they meant by -a long session.
