AMC puts you in the picture with a double-shot of readers’ images. Theme song: ‘Kodachrome’ by Paul Simon.
Paul Morris who sent us these images from 1987 has never raced V8 Supercars and doesn’t go by the nickname of ‘The Dude’. He has, however, captured the opening of The Fast Lane – a purveyor of fine Brockmobiles in Adelaide. This, of course, was after Peter Brock’s bust-up with Holden, when the Bathurst legend set about establishing new dealers in key markets. “I remember that we headed up one morning to see if we could get a glimpse of the man himself – not exactly a common sight in Adelaide back then,” says Paul, who admits to drooling over the mystical VL Director and #10, “the Bathurst-winning car later that year being used for ceremonial purposes.” Life in The Fast Lane was not smooth sailing and it didn’t see out the decade. Hey Brocky, Richie Benaud called, he wants his suit back. Is that the cream, the bone, the beige, the ivory, the off-white or the white? So very eighties.
