The Folden

7:46:00 AM

A four-door Mustang? Well no... what you are looking at is fusion of a 1969 Mustang and a 1970's Holden HQ Sedan (Chevy of the OZ). Created by a New Zealander Radio show "The Rock's Drive Show" Robert Taylor and Jono Pryor, who were tired of the ongoing feud between Holden & Ford.

The Project took about 3 months and more than 800 man hours involving a couple of dozen of businesses, and not to mention a total cost ranging somewhere between NZD$85,000 to $95,000 (about US$62,000 to $69,500).

And what now? New Zealanders have the chance to bid for the Folden as the car is being auctioned on "Trademe" with proceeds to be donated to the NZ Mental Health Foundation for Out Of The Blue, an organization set up to help combat depression in men.

At the time the article was written, the highest bid on the website was NZ$62,700 or close to US$45,800 at today's exchange rates. The auction will end on May 6, 2010.
