Pearls raises $1500 with car show

Pearls Radiators, air-conditioning and mechanical, recently held a tuff car day fundraiser for the Ipswich Hospital – Children’s Sunshine Ward in early June, they managed to raise

They had a wide variety of cars on the day, from a 1927 restored Model T to late model Falcons and Holdens. There was plenty to keep the whole family interested, a sausage sizzle, jumping castles, music, raffles, and bash the bomb.

If you have never heard of bash the bomb its where you sell 60 seconds for $5 to use a sledge hammer on a vehicle. The car the guys had was an AU Ford Falcon station wagon, and with lots of Holden fans around it was looking a bit worse for wear after they had finished with it.

Another big hit with the crowd was when all the guys who had their cars on display started their engines and gave them some big, big revs to make some noise for all that had attended.

The kids loved the white VY ute which gave plenty of squirts of NOS, a real crowd pleaser, plus the sound of the very lumpy A9X was another great head turner. The guys gave 5 trophies away for best custom, best street driven, a peoples choice, show n shine and best original. (best custom – Mafia – Chrysler 300c , best street driven- GTR Torana, people’s choice – midget speedway racecar , show n shine – Mafia Chrysler 300c, best original – Model T ).

There is now talk of making this an annual event with the great support that was shown by the community for a local business that only 18 months earlier had been fully inundated by flood water. Overall it was a great day had by all and we are very much looking forward to doing it again one day soon. The day could not have been what it was without these car enthusiast’s and all the volunteers that helped on the day so a massive thank you to all those guys and girls who helped make the day that it was.
