What happens when a bunch of great hot rod and lowbrow artists come together to help kick cancer’s ass as part of the Shitbox Rally? The Shitbox Artists Art Auction is what happens!

The Shitbox Rally itself is a challenge to participating teams to drive cars worth under $1,000 across some of Australia’s most formidable roads, all in the name of charity. Teams are encouraged to give their car a name and a theme as part of the fun, with some hilarious results. This year’s event will see teams drive 3,800km from Brisbane to Darwin from May 19-25th. Each team needs to raise a minimum of $4,000 to take part, with all proceeds going towards the Cancer Council. Of course this is just a minimum, and each team is encouraged to raise as much as they can!

This is where the Shitbox Artists Art Auction comes in. Vicki Pattison, a renowned signwriter and artist from Queensland, is half of the ‘Blonde Bandits’ team. She’s teamed up with hot rod and lowbrow artists from across Australia to hold an art auction. Bidding starts at $150 on each piece, and all proceeds go to their team total – and then the Cancer Council of course!

We’ve shared some of the art below, but make sure you check out their facebook page Shitbox Artists Art Auction for full auction details. Dig deep, the art is amazing and the cause is great! And thanks to all of the participating artists for donating their work.

The Summernats City Cruise is a great way to check out a nice range of tidy streeters without the crowds within Natex, and a great way to show off some nice rides to the locals. We were in the neighbourhood so stopped by to check things out.

Held in the country town of Gresford, The Mud Run is a weekend of old fashioned fun with old cars, good music, and bloody cold nights. The mix of cars on the track ranges from street registered classics, traditional jalopies, and rats cobbled together from spare parts. Everyone gets a chance to get nice and muddy for 5 or so laps, then scoot around to rejoin the cue to go around again.

Well, that is if you manage to keep things sunny side up… Our Commer van wasn’t so fortunate, a tyre pealing off a rim combined with a narrow front track saw her go rubber side up. The crew were great in making sure everyone was okay – thankfully everyone was, but we can’t say the same for our old van!


Watching the replay…5

With our van out of play, all that was left to do to sit back with a few beverages and watching the action on the track. 6791011121314151617181920212223242526272829303132333435

Another cracking Mud Run, and all of our guys are looking forward to getting back there next year – hopefully with a new ride!
