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.
