An old Volvo converted into a rally car, a vehicle covered in fake grass, and a van decked out like the school bus from The Simpsons.
These are some of the vehicles the participants hope will hold together long enough to travel thousands of kilometres to Townsville to raise money for cancer research.
About 30 people in a dozen vehicles left Albury for Melbourne on Friday, and will begin the 3600 kilometre journey to Townsville via Birdsville on Saturday.
Their vehicles, all worth less $1000, are part of the annual Cancer Council fundraising rally.
Some have already travelled thousands of kilometres from Queensland just to start, and will tick over about 7000 kilometres.
Scott Russell and Brook Ratcliff's groups have already raised $35,000 for the cause.

Some cars have already experienced mechanical issues but Mr Russell is quietly confident their vehicle will make the journey.
"We will definitely get to Townsville, one way or another," he said.
Tom Corra is undertaking his fifth rally and knows how hard they can be.
"You get the sense it's going to be a holiday, until you start to do them," he said.
"It's physically gruelling, mentally gruelling, but also rewarding to actually finish each day.
"You get a sense of achievement."
Mr Corra said the drivers could start driving at 8.30am, and still be going at 2am the following day if a group vehicle breaks down.
Some days involve 600 kilometres of driving.
The drivers expect to arrive in Townsville next Friday.
