Moffat 1969 Trans Am Mustang in-car footage. Fantastic noise!

Here is some in car footage from the Gold Coast 600 Legends demonstration event, taking it easy as there is a lot of concrete there to hit!

The Lakeside Reunion - Dick Johnson & the Tru Blu XD Falcon
Race legend Dick Johnson is reunited with his famous 1981 XD Falcon, for a
couple of laps at their spiritual home of Lakeside Raceway. This was the
first time together at this track since the mid eighties.
It was at Lakeside that DJ and Tru Blu had a now legendary race against
Peter Brock's HDT Commodore, narrowly winning in front of a crowd of 30 000
race fans. This sealed the first of two memorable Australian Touring Car
Championships in Tru Blu.
Tru Blu was retired from the track in 1985 and lay dormant till a recent
mechanical revival. On her original battle scarred warpaint, she now wears
the famous Bathurst winning livery from 1981. Now alive once more, this
survivor from the Group C racing era is still run at select race events, so
her fans- old and new- can enjoy seeing her once again.
Thank you to DJR for letting us showcase the XD and Sierra at their ride
day at Lakeside Raceway. Also to the team at Qld Raceways for allowing us
to run mid week, at a reduced speed, when there were concerns with the
noise restrictions now at the famous track....
More videos on other famous cars coming soon, including the soon to be
completed 1992 Shell DJR RS500 Sierra, so stay tuned. Check out more of Tru
Blu and our other cars here: www.bowdensown.com.au

Unearthed: Sandown 1969 Video Featuring Allan Moffat's Mustang
A big thanks to Australian Muscle Car magazine reader Kane Docker for
supplying this fabulous vision from Sandown's February, 1969 meeting. Kane
explains: "I have recently come across some footage recorded onto 8mm
Kodachrome 2 film stock. I purchased them from a deceased estate garage
sale in a box with other home videos of a general family nature and a very
old Titan 8mm projector -- for the princely sum of $15." Thanks also to our
mystery cameraman. The vision captures the famed Moffat Mustang in its debut event,
open-wheelers, grid girls, circus tents, etc. Enjoy.
