Could be from last year until Tuesday for some new ones. Interested in how others doll up their T's for parades, events, or just 4th of July weekend trips to the ice cream parlor.

Dressing up the War Wagon and the Jeep and the house today. Will post photos later. Small parade at Presbyterian Village with the War Wago and a large parade on Tuesday in Marietta, GA with the jeep and machine gun trailer.

It's a good day to be an American. The heck with those Canadians. Get your own holiday!

The pictures of Tom Carnegie and Scott Rawlings were from the 1977 Montana 500 Cross Country run where Tom Carnegie won the race and Scott Rawlings finished 16th. Brought back great memories.

39 years ago today this lovely lady and i were married in a small ceremony and then drove our Speedster in the local 4th of July parade. That was followed by an annual Car Club picnic. The car hobby has been part of our lives and good to us.

Corbett, Oregon parade, 2016

Joy took the kids and some neighbors in the parade in our C-cab. This was the Summer of 1985 and I was spending every spare minute finishing my 1915 Roadster for an HCCA Tour in McCall. Parades were much fun for years but waiting in line without restroom facilities and other considerations eroded the fun. Now we take the old car to breakfast instead. Often well intentioned folks point out we are late or missing the parade. That is as much fun for me.
The C-cab differential went out after the parade (below) and Joy and the kids walked home. She feared it was her driving and not the years of racing and hauling sand that differential endured.

Well, I flipped a coin and the Model Ts lost, so I took our '06 REO to the parade instead. Click on the gob of letters and numbers below and see part of the the City of Piedmont, California parade. Leading our group was a 1905 Studebaker Electric along side of a new Tessla. The new and old electric technology. Hope this works for you. https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipPJYtx8Z5BAa87Ffjq7LLdpR3LkFh5vWDoJXiQQ0Pk0 HHBqr40MpkjPg_SaJkX1dw/photo/AF1QipMMCQmVFD5x4LpgPqFDpcCQFhirUzaAehU2twFI?key=Wk NrS3hxb19mX29Id0tiMDFCUUlwQmxIMmhvUmxR

I see so many cars driving in a straight line down the street. The Milwaukee clubs weaves in and out so we can visit both sides of the street and go forwards or backwards. The crowd loves it. On an occasion you get a stretch where you can give it a little gas. Especially fun with the speedster.

Great pictures, Don! Did the parade organizers supply the signs telling folks what each car was?

Is that Ed Archer in the 1906 Locomobile?

:-)

Mark, yes the City provided the signs. You might recognize the guy in the 1906 Locomobile. He was weaving as you can see the "barn find" 1914 Model T behind him on a weird angle. Years ago they would not let us weave as many threw out candy for the kids and they were running out to retrieve the candy. They then outlawed candy being thrown out of cars so we took up weaving. Our HCCA regional group organized about 50 or 60 cars for the parade. Many took the dignitaries.

Yes that is Ed Archer. Dan and Mary McEachern were in his '14 touring (no photo) and daughters can be seen in the speedster.

We put decorations on the car in the rain, which stopped 10 minutes before the parade. The engine got so wet, water pooled around the spark plugs. Then, the low gear clutch pedal came back as it should but the band seemed to stick on the drum, if that made sense. That caused the car to stall once. By the end, I think it was running on three cylinders. I'll inspect it this weekend. We had to take cover in a porta potty!

Thank you Don A! (I think?) Quite a few people I know in those pictures.
Many other nice wonderful pictures of lots of people enjoying the day as well. Nice!
Thank you all.

Made it onto the local Panama City, FL news! The 1914 made it thru the parade (86+ deg, 76% RH - brutal!) - thank you Brassworks! Father-in-law even got interviewed (30 yr USA vet). We were the oldest car by far - will reach out to other local T owners for next year's parade to bolster the ranks. To an earlier poster's comment, yes, going back and forth across the roadway works well to "engage" the crowd - hell, they don't know if you'll be able to stop!

Steve, your videos and pictures are always interesting.

Mark, not bad. It's a very familiar route.

Ignacio, you're in the same boat I am: touring with no top. Maybe this year.
:-)
