IT’S time to rev your engines, the Wally Boys car club are back with their bi-annual fundraiser for Walliston Primary School on Sunday, March 25.

Matt Ross said the fundraiser had donated $25,000 to the school since it started in 2010.

“That first year we had around 100 cars that attended and it was a great success, raising funds for the school through sponsorship from local businesses and gold coin donations from entrants and participants,” he said.

“Our 2016 show was massive with 280 cars and bikes crammed on the oval with more cars circling the school trying to get access but we just ran out of room.

“2018 is set to be bigger than ever with a better layout utilising the undercover area for some of the prestige vehicles, more parking for spectators and a heap of activities for the kids.”

Mr Ross said the Wally Boys were a group of car enthusiasts from the Walliston and surrounding suburbs.

“In 2000 the group was started with just a few mates that loved Aussie muscle cars,” he said.

“The cars are driven regularly, some in competitive motorsports and the rest just love to cruise around with a fat arm out the window.

“We now have more than 400 members including a core group of the local original Wally Boys who help in organising the car show.

“Now some of our kids attend the school it makes the fundraiser even more special.”

Walliston Primary P&C President Natalie Jenkins said money raised would go towards cooling for the school’s undercover area and playground upgrades for kindergarten and pre-primary students.
