In 1999 David Mayman and his father Peter found a 1996 HR Holden to do the Brickpit to Broome NSW Variety Bash – as Car 666. David and his business partner Eddy Solbrandt bought the car and Year One of the Little Pigs Crew was established.
Previously Car 666 had completed NSW Bashes as the ‘Pink Pussy’ with Tony and Sue Basher, but David and Eddy re-themed the car as the 3 Little Pigs due to the outrageous pink upholstery. As you can see the pink theme has flourished and thrived!!
Year Four of the Pig included a second car in the team Car 333 the Big Bad Wolf.
See the Little Pigs Hall of Fame for full listing of crews.
In 2005 Eddy Solbrandt and Roger Allen completed the Year Seven of the Pig in the Barossa Valley with a National Bash Finish in Adelaide with Sallymae Bailey driving over the final ‘finish line’.
Sallymae Bailey purchased the car in 2006 and changed the number to Car 333, but not the 3 Little Pigs and pink theme. Pigs Still Fly!!!
Next year will be Year 22 of the Pig with Brendon Morron for his 10th year and Sallymae Bailey for her 20th! We will be joined by ‘virgin’ pig Andrew Sims, another Kiwi driver.
