We have just purchased a St184 to use in the 2017 Sh!tbox rally, a major fundraiser for the Cancer Council. The rally is not a race rather a challenge to achieve the unthinkable, to drive cars worth $1,000 across Australia via some of its most arduous roads, all in the name of charity.
In 2017 we will be travelling over 3,800km from Adelaide, South Australia to Cairns in North Queensland. The trip will see participants face the challenge of highly variable terrain, remote outback roads and changing climates. The route will take us via both the Oondatta Track and the Plenty Highway and is sure to be a truly memorable experience for all involved.
Last year we did the rally in a Fairlane but felt it was a bit easy so this year we are doing it in a beaten up 92 ST184 we got for $400 of eBay. Will it make it? what will we do to it? What will our theme be?? All will be revealed over time.
We have to keep the car budget under $1000 excluding work we do ourselves so if any local mechanical skilled people in Brisbane want to help out, please give us a shout out..
