Car 9 - The Deadmen of Car9

We are taking part in the Variety Bash to help kids in need

G’day! We are so excited to be taking part in this year’s Variety Bash – travelling all the way from Melbourne Victoria to Geraldton WA – the long way round! 

Variety Bash Car 9 has been participating in the Bash for since 2013 and have wanted to make a difference ever since.    The Madmen of Car 9, Bro, Howie and Pete will be driving the mighty Middys 1979 Holden Statesman Deville in the 2019 Variety Vic Bash and are hoping to raise more than $20,000 for Variety the Children's Charity. This will be the 7th time our car has participated and hoping to bring our total for all the events to over $140,000, not bad for a group of tradies.

The Variety Bash is a once in a lifetime chance to experience remote and regional parts of Australia in outrageously themed classic cars, all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Throughout the event, we’ll be visiting local towns, stopping into schools and organisations to help kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs through the provision of educational, health and mobility equipment. And the giving doesn’t stop there! Variety continue to support children, families and communities throughout the year with funds raised from the Variety Bash.

Help us give Aussie kids a fair go – donate today!
