Vintage cars hit the road for cause
Vintage cars hit the road for cause

A truck run from Perth to Kalgoorlie-Boulder has raised nearly $8000 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

The vintage vehicles hit the road last week for the journey, eventually arriving in the city on Tuesday.

Organiser Brian Brookes said the run had gone well, with about 30 trucks participating over the course of the event.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the support – even with people having to head home for work commitments,” Mr Brookes said.

A truck driver for more than 50 years, Mr Brookes said the idea for the event came from similar runs in Victoria and New South Wales.

The run was organised through the Vintage Car Club of Australia, with vehicles including a 1939 GMC truck and a 1949 Austin 3-tonne truck.
