ON ONE of the last Sundays of summer more than 130 Jeep Wranglers, plus a few other Jeep 4x4s, gathered at the Melbourne workshop of Double Black Off Road (DBOR) for the fifth Jeep Go Topless Cruise.
More than just a day out with Jeepers, the annual cruise raises money for the Australian Food Allergy Foundation and, with the help of products donated from sponsors, this year gave more than $16,400 to the foundation.
Double Black is a Jeep specialist shop, and owner Bill Barbas lives the Jeep life to the fullest. He’s always out off-roading with his customers and testing the many products and modification they fit at DBOR. The shop caters for all Jeeps for the off-road enthusiast, from mall crawlers to mountain maulers and everything in between.
The Go Topless Cruise didn’t head off-road this weekend but enjoyed the summer sunshine with a road run across Melbourne, along the iconic St Kilda Beach strip before ending up in a park on the other side of town. Most of the Jeeps had their roofs off and some even removed their doors for the day. The convoy stopped traffic as it ventured across town with all involved having a great time, and it’s all for a good cause.
Double Black Off Road is in the suburb of Moorabbin, and you can find out more at www.doubleblackoffroad.com.
