If ever there was a car to make Aussies hate Kiwis even more, this is it. The Folden - a 1970s HQ Holden Kingswood sedan that’s had a 1969 Ford Mustang front end grafted on - has been built in New Zealand, with the aim of stirring up passionate Holden and Ford fans.

Jono Pryor and Robert Taylor host The Rock’s drive show, and they admit they've built the car as a means of kicking the beehive – they wanted to see what would happen if they stirred up people's passions.

“We came up with this outrageous idea about six months ago,” said Taylor during the unveiling of the Folden. “Ninety per cent of our listening audience are keen motorsport fans and [they’re] into cars and souping up of cars and racing of cars. So we thought why not poke a stick quite literally at them, and try and stir them up somehow.

“We found ourselves in a peculiar situation, too, where nobody else in their right sane mind would want to do this sort of thing – or at least waste the money, some might say, on doing it,” he said.

The project has reportedly cost the radio show between $85,000 and $95,000. But the money was well spent, as the car is being auctioned off on auction site TradeMe with a starting price of just $1.

It’s for a good cause, too, with the programme pledging to donate all proceeds from the auction to the NZ Mental Health Foundation for Out Of The Blue - an organisation set up to help men who suffer from depression.
