Car 4040

We're on our way

Well we are finally on our way after taking the engine in and out three times in the last two weeks!!

Thanks so much to our helpers, Will, Alli, Herman, Matt, Jordy, Mox and Browny for all your help!  We wouldn't be here without you all.

Safely made it to Mebourne, 12 hours on the road, 584 miles.....




Thanks Matt for your help with our artwork for the Bash Car!

Thanks heaps to the talented Matt Colton for his help and support with the Bash Car artwork!

Love it!

Bash car prep update

Busy weekend at the Colton residence with all workers on deck to continue with the preparation for the Bash Car.

Many thanks to Will & Alli, Herman, and Mox for their assistance in getting the dif back in and replacing the dash, and stone guards on lights, as well as many other things.

Rowe Electrical came through last week in rewiring under the dash..... it was quite a mess in there so thanks Jordy! Don't forget there's still a bit to finish off Jordy.....

A special thanks to Fido for getting the steering column sorted for us, after many had tried and not succeeded.

Keep posted for next week's efforts as we are hoping to have everything back in working condition.

New steering wheel, sound system, insulation and finally the sponsors stickers to go on!

A special thanks also to our two little helpers Lizie & Cooper.... they had a ball helping out until they crashed out together....

Can't thank you all enough for your help. We wouldn't have made it without you.

Thanks also for our latest donations, Mick & Paula, Lesa & Allan, Janette Dobija, & Tony & Bron!

Cheers Lib & Tom

We're 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! 

Well actually we're from NSW so we'll be travelling from Newcastle  to Melbourne then on to Geraldton WA!

Just bought our car, so this is all new to us but looking forward to the experience.

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!

My Achievements

Goal! Ten donations received for kids in need!

$500 will supply an iPad for a non-verbal child

$1,000 will supply a specialised trampoline for children with sensory needs

$3,000 buys a portable scooter for a child with limited mobility

Oh wow $10,000 for kids in need. You are champs!!

Thank you to my Sponsors
