Camp Quality esCarpade Bundaberg to Wollongong
Posted 21 October 2013 - 06:48 PM
As a fundraiser for Camp Quality, our team 95 cars) raised over $127k and collectively the 60 or so cars raised over $1.1 million.
The trip included long days (some over 12 hours to do around 550km) and visiting various schools along the way for education about kids with cancer.
An amazing week with some pretty incredible cars (1959 Morris minor (with datsun 1200 engine and auto gearbox), a 1975 rolls royce and a wide range of holdens, fords and more.
the route started in Bundaberg in Queensland, went to Dalby, then Lisome, Coffs Harbour, Muswellbrook, Bathurst (including two laps of Mt Panorama) then on to finish in Wollongong.
Thanks to the forum embers who helped out with a few items (towbars, wheels etc), happy to say I didn't need the towing out at any stage and the amazing roads, both tarmac and dirt were a joy (most of the time) to drive on.
if you ever get the chance, zed or other car, a great event and a very worthwhile charity.

Glad you didn't need the towbar.

I did have some ask me 'what is that car?" Answered a zed, then it was, do you think you will make it?? Two days later, i went past busted holden... guess who? yep,. the ones that asked what i was driving. Even the 1958 morris minor (with the datto engine) lasted the whole trip - and they drove from the southern highlands all the way up to Bundaberg to start the event.
Definitely a great cause, so already thinking of next years event - looking like Broken Hill to somewhere in Victoria via the Barossa.

Haha, they probably thought it was an English sports car, in which case it probably wouldn't have made it.
