COR­REC­TIVE SER­VICES 1971 MUS­TANG ES­SEN­TIAL: BEER & FUEL

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Feature -

I got in­volved when the 2009 Bash started in Townsville and went to Ay­ers Rock. I bought my car the next year. I didn’t quite have it ready for 2010 but started in 2011. I was into mo­tor­bikes when I was younger so I wasn’t re­ally into cars un­til I got the Bash car. I only know what I’ve picked up from the other blokes. I orig­i­nally had a 1969 Valiant – it was re­ally hard to find parts for. Mus­tangs are ba­si­cally the same as a Fal­con, the parts will go straight in. I did the first two bashes with a friend from school, then with a friend from the Army Re­serve for the next two years who un­for­tu­nately passed away about four weeks af­ter the Bash but he got his last hur­rah, which was good. It’s a lot of fun and ca­ma­raderie, and see­ing what they do for the kids, that’s the im­por­tant thing. You get to get away from life in gen­eral, tele­vi­sion, phones — it’s usu­ally 3000Ks, all on dirt.” -
