This unopened bottle of Sundrop is now 30 yrs. old. I have owned this bottle since 1982 when bought at a Race in Darlington.

    Well I don't want to start a hissing contest so you tell your story and I will stick to the truth. I know when they was released when Jr. came on the scene with his Sun Drop car. That is when they released the bottles for Sr. If I had the time I would go find the carton that has the date on it that the carton was made.

    Just thought of something. Longneck bottles for Sun Drop wasn't out then. They was in a return deposit bottle. If they where made in the eightys how could they have the 90's championship on them? They didn't know when Earnhardt would win championships IN THE 80's. They where all released in cases one BOTTLE AT A TIME. If you paid $10.00 a peace for them someone had a good day and it wasn't you. They might sell for $2.00 each now. Maybe $5.00 at one time when they first was released.

    did They have bar codes back in 1980?

    I did a little bit of research on this in the past. It was first used commercially in 1966, randomly, but they did not come up with a industry standard to use until June of 1974. The first UPC scanner was installed at a Marsh's supermarket in Troy, Ohio. The first product to have a bar code scanned was a pack of Wrigleys Chewing gum. I thought that this was really a interesting subject, and could be helpful when dating items.

    If you look at the bottom side of the bottle you will see a 92 year the next number you see is the month it was made.
