The FJ Holden, 1977
Kevin (Paul Couzens) is an apprentice motor mechanic who spends his time drinking and cruising around Bankstown, NSW with his mate Bob (Carl Stever) in Kevin's bright yellow FJ Holden, looking for girls.
Universally acclaimed as a true and confident account of contemporary working class suburban life, the film initially received a R classification from the Australian Film Board of Review, but after an appeal to the censors it was revised to a M classification for moderate sex scenes and moderate coarse language. However, all states except Victoria and New South Wales exercised their right to override the Commonwealth decision and retained the R classification
