'Cone' you believe it: cool customers take on banger rally in Vauxhall Agila 'ice cream van'

COMETH the hour, cometh the ice cream man — well, two to be precise.

Madcap motorists Stuart Burns (36, below left) and Reuben Baker (35) will set off to Scotland this Friday in a £250 Vauxhall Agila they have converted to look like an ice cream van.

The pair of cool customers even plan to don suitable outfits of chef’s whites and paper hats for the drive north.

It’s all in aid of a banger rally from York to Inverness via Stirling and Loch Ness, hopefully arriving at their destination by Sunday.

Stuart, of Bramley, and Reuben, of Huddersfield are rally veterans, having driven through 12 countries last year, so they should easily have this weekend’s challenge licked.

The dynamic duo will be spending the days taking turns at the wheel of the little Agila, which has been decorated with co decals by Meadowhall--based Revolution Rides.

Stuart will also be taking on challenges for sponsorship during the drive.

He said: "We've done a few rallies now and this car is by far the best decorated thanks to Mark at Revolution Rides.

"We can't wait to get it on the road and make some money for charity."

All the money raised will go to the Motor Neurone Disease Association, in memory of Stuart’s brother Stephen, who died from the disease in 2016 aged just 34.

“The work the Motor Neurone Disease Association does is amazing and the support they gave my brother and his family was vital,” Stuart said.

“I continue to raise money for them so that they always have the resources to offer this support to other families in future.”
