Dr Datto had the privelege to have a private meeting with the owner of the Trackside Restaurant in Gosford (Central Coast NSW) also during that private interview he was allowed a personal invitation to take any photos he liked of the vehicles which are on display (and allowed to open bonnets and boot lids to take these photos) which normally customers of the restaurant are not allowed to even touch the vehicles. To view Dr Datto's exclusive detailed photos of these vehicles go to "Doc's Pics" page (156 photos in events) Most of Dr Datto's photos are of the following car:-
Group "C" Nissan Bluebird #55 - The Bluebird was built and raced by the Nissan Motor Company during 1983-1984. Driven by George Fury, the car contested 11 rounds of the Touring Car Championship during 1983-1984 including 2 James Hardie 1000 Bathurst Enduros. The car made history when George Fury qualified for pole position at the 1984 James Hardie 1000, setting a track record of 2 minutes 13.85 seconds. This record remained for seven years and was finally broken in 1991. The car was restored by Gibson Motorsport with help from Mark Skaife, Glenn Seton and Graham (Jackie) Stewart.
