It’s been a wild couple of weeks for the Quarters! Between organising sponsorships, collecting donations for the charities, getting people talking about Put Foot, prepping for the PMB Cars in the Park, getting Rhino cookies made (yes we love those little critters that much!), and arranging to show off Frau at the Liberty Midlands Mall, we haven’t had much chance to do any more blog posts (or sleep) so here goes!
Firstly, we’d just like to say that it’s been truly AMAZING to see how people and local businesses have really stepped up and shown their support for the Rally, the Charities and our team. We really didn’t know how people would respond to us asking for assistance and donations when we started this fantastic journey (for us, the trip has already begun) and their enthusiasm has exceeded our wildest expectations – so a BEEEEG thank you to all our sponsors and donors!
In the last 2 weeks Frau’s been pushed, pulled, tweaked, stretched, buffed, hammered and vinyl-ed. She’s got new Safari shocks fitted courtesy of Gabriel and Supa Quick PMB (thanks Sean, Elza, Marius, Andrew and Colin!!). AND…she’s also been given a full service, new tyres, new exhaust and a new battery courtesy of Crescent Car Sales here in PMB (A MASSIVE MASSIVE thanks to Mr Shameer and Feroz, as well as Speed It Exhausts, Battery Centre and Greg from Tiger Wheel and Tyre!!!). Oh yeah!! All that’s still needed is the rest of our rally vinyl and we’re set to go. Heading through to Katie and Brenna Designs in Hillcrest tomorrow morning to get our Quarters logo applied!
This weekend the Quarters and Frau are heading up to the ‘Pietermaritzburg Cars in the Park’ to show her off to the tens of thousands of vintage car enthusiasts that attend the show each year. The Chairman of the KZN Mercedes Club has invited us to exhibit Frau with the Club in the main oval so we’ll really be in the thick of things. We’ll be doing a bit of ‘fun’ fundraising and chatting to locals about the Rally and supporting our charities (connections my cousin, this is KZN…).
