GLENN Cornish (Mandurah) and Tony Italiano (Singleton) will both field teams in this year’s Variety Diamonds and Pearls Bash.
Mr Cornish’s team is called the Ninja Turtles in a Ford, while Mr Italiano’s entry is called the Penguins of Madagascar.
The race starts in Kununurra this Sunday, August 21 with a convoy of 29 cars and 89 participants.
They will embark on a trip of a lifetime for a weeklong adventure, travelling through the top end of WA to raise money for Variety – the Children’s Charity of WA.
Participants have been busy getting their pre-1985 cars bash ready by choosing creative themes for their cars and organising costumes.
The trip will culminate a yearlong fundraising effort, with each new car raising a minimum of $8000 and returning cars, a minimum of $10,000.
