Unearthed: 1970 Bathurst 500 vision

Bathurst 1970 was a battle between the Falcon GT-HOs, Torana XU-1s and Valiant Pacers. Here's a unique view of the action supplied to AMC by reader Michael Dariz. It comes from an 8mm soundless film reel shot at the Mountain shot by a TV crew member with his own gear. "Friends of mine gave me this reel a while back because they knew I love the muscle car era," Dariz said. "The person who filmed this was contracted to a TV station back then and the reason he did his own filming during his breaks was to try and decide what car he was going to buy. The things people do!" Thanks Michael (and the original cameraman) for sharing this vision.
