Car 869 -The Audi

Audi - the look!

Our friend Julian Whitta designer extraordinairre of Hillcrest Design (and Audi recruit) has designed a brilliant wrap.  We are doing a Lord of the Rings theme so rings, brooches and hobbits will abound!  

Getting classic car registration - a day in the life of a bashee.

We had a brief meeting with Towball, long time revered Bash mechanic on the side of the road in Altona as I was going for scrutiny for a classic car registration. This was the day after the roadworthy where a mechanic checked replacement brake rotors and transmission mounts.  To my great surprise the wheel lug nuts came off the front left wheel just over the WestGate Bridge.  Towball bemused but helpful arrived and assisted in getting me going and checking that the car was OK.  I was apprehensive but he said 'nah..you could get to Geraldton with that!'

 

I'm taking part in the Variety Bash to help kids in need

Hi. We hunted for an old Audi to take on this year’s Variety Bash. (We found it - see the picture below).  There is not that much time to find one to fix up for the trip across Australia  -  from Melbourne Victoria to Geraldton, through the middle of WA. 

The Variety Bash seems like a great bunch of people doing a fun thing for kids. Its a good cause run like a military exercise by Variety – the Children’s Charity and its a good excuse to experience remote and regional parts of Australia and the friendliness of county towns and folk.

We will be joining entrants stopping at local schools and organisations to make donations to help kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.

We have great business friends many of whom have already told us they are happy to make some of their charitable donations through our entry in the Variety Vic Bash. 

Please join them and help us give Aussie kids a lift – donate today! Visit our page here https://fundraise.variety.org.au/fundraisers/michaelhall/bash
