    Last year on the Fox Bathurst Channel they were showing a lot of the 70's and 80's Hardie/Hardie Ferodo 1000's. So many classics.. I can't find many pics on the net but this is the John Goss Racing XC Falcon - the Brabhams raced in. I thought it looked awesome. But how about the Sponsor.

    Stud Cola! How very 70's..

    Stud cola. I'd forgotten about that. The cans looked like denim jeans.

    ^ Not a Bathurst classic per se. However, it did come up in my YouTube recommendations and I thought the posters in this thread may appreciate it.
