Złombol USA // Lake Michigan // 1st USA Edition

Embark on a captivating journey through time with the debut of Złombol in the USA! This unprecedented event invites vintage car aficionados of the communist era to gather for a remarkable rally around the iconic Lake Michigan. This venture is more than a mere celebration of automotive history; it’s a journey woven with the threads of adventure and fellowship.
Yet, the essence of this rally transcends the allure of classic cars and picturesque landscapes. At its heart lies a noble cause: to transform the lives of children from Polish orphanages. We are committed to ensuring that every penny raised during this extraordinary event directly benefits these children, offering them hope and a brighter future.
Imagine a procession of vintage cars, each with a unique history, meandering along Lake Michigan’s shores. This sight, set against a canvas of stunning vistas and the remnants of a bygone era, promises an unparalleled experience. From the rugged terrains to the charm of small towns, participants will indulge in the excitement of discovery, traversing a path rich in history and culture.
This inaugural American edition of the legendary Złombol rally stands as a homage to automotive heritage, celebrating the durability and spirit of these historical vehicles. But the rally’s soul is found in its participants, the bonds formed on this journey, and their collective quest for adventure.

As we rally together around Lake Michigan, we’re not just honoring the legacy of these emblematic vehicles; we’re crafting new tales and etching a fresh chapter in the storied annals of the Złombol rally. So, ignite your engines, embrace your wanderlust, and join us on this unforgettable expedition around Lake Michigan for the pioneering Złombol rally in the USA!

But what is Złombol about?

Złombol is an extraordinary journey into the uncharted, embarked upon in venerable automobiles from the era of communism. We are undaunted by steep inclines, soaring hills, sweltering heat, and fatigue, as well as the inevitable mechanical repairs under the harshest conditions. But paramount to our adventure is the noble cause at its heart! We rally to raise funds and donate every cent to support children in orphanages. Our mission is to enrich their lives, whether it’s through toys, home essentials, educational materials, or whatever else is needed to realize their dreams. We’re investing in their future, expanding their worldviews with educational trips and holiday experiences. Our aim is to provide them with a leg up towards a brighter future, through opportunities for educational courses and extracurricular activities. Our approach is personal; we listen and respond to their individual needs.


Every time we ask ourselves „why are we doing this” and what fuels us, we clearly answer – CHARITY! We drive for children from orphanages! Of course, we are passionate about Złombol vehicles and our amazing journeys and adventures, but at the end of the day, the main drive behind organizing Złombol is the desire to help. The joy of helping and the joy of working with people who feel the same as we do – as you often emphasize, „the more of you there are, the more money is raised and that is what’s most important.” We believe that it’s not the quantity but the quality of involvement that counts. Teams can collect 60% and even 100% more than the minimum required. Following this path, we focus more on charity than just spurring a big event. We analyzed how collections from participants shaped up in recent years, and more than half raised 900 PLN more than the set minimum.

The fundraising goal remains unchanged, and we plan to allocate the entire amount collected to:

? psychological support; individual therapies, group therapies, supervision for caregivers, independent living accommodations in Krakow

? trips including: excursions, camps, colonies, holidays, club outings (tailored to individual interests)

? fulfilling „custom-made” dreams; driving license courses, language courses, sports equipment, subscriptions to favorite magazines, gifts for significant occasions… This point offers many possibilities and much joy, certainly including the ability to make decisions for oneself.

Welcome to the Złombol Charity Rally Experience!

Welcome to your first Złombol Charity Rally! We are thrilled to have you join this incredible adventure that combines the joy of travel with the purpose of making a meaningful impact. As you embark on this journey, here are a few key things you should know and prepare for:

Purpose of the Rally: Złombol is not just about driving old cars over long distances; it’s about driving change. Our primary mission is to raise funds for children from orphanages, providing them with psychological support, opportunities for fun and learning, and assistance in transitioning to independent living.

What to Expect:

  • Adventure and Challenge: The rally is designed to test your resilience and adaptability. You will navigate through diverse terrains and possibly face mechanical challenges, all in vehicles that are as full of character as they are of years.
  • Community and Teamwork: You will meet and collaborate with a diverse group of participants who share a common goal of support and charity. The connections you make here can last a lifetime.
  • Impact: Every mile you cover, every challenge you overcome, contributes directly to our fundraising goals. Your participation goes beyond the rally; it extends into the lives of the children we support.

Preparation Tips:

  • Vehicle Preparedness: Ensure your vehicle is rally-ready. While the charm of Złombol is in the unpredictability, a well-maintained vehicle can make all the difference.
  • Fundraising: Remember, the more funds you raise, the greater the impact we can make. Engage your friends, family, and community to support your fundraising.
  • Travel Essentials: Pack smartly. Bring tools, spare parts, and essentials for both your car and personal comfort. Prepare for all weather conditions and ensure you have navigation tools.

Safety and Support: While the rally is about embracing the unexpected, your safety remains our top priority. We do not provide on-route mechanical support or concierge services, so independence and problem-solving are key. However, in case of emergencies, we will always strive to assist you to the best of our capabilities.
