TERRY Devries, Slim Cook and Steve Cook are Stuck in the 80s until July 20 as they drive from Gladstone to Tamworth in the Road Boss Rally.

The trio are driving their aptly named 1986 Ford Fairlane to raise money for the Rotary Club of Geebung and GIVIT organisation.

Rotary Club of Geebung secretary Steve Cook said they have been looking forward to the trip for a long time.

"The last one we did was two years ago,” he said.

"We came up with the (team name) idea because it's a 1980's car and the graphics are Back to the Future.”

The rally started on July 10 and goes via the Boulia Camel Races and outback Queensland.

Mr Cook said so far they have raised $6500 and are aiming for $10,000.

"We've been raising money for about three months,” he said.

"It's a life changing experience being in the rally.

"You wouldn't normally go to these places and there's 50 other cars so it becomes a big family, it's good fun.”

Since 1979 Rotary International has been working to end polio and have reduced the number of cases by 99.9% their ultimate aim is to eradicate it by 2020.
