A good friend of mine has an antique car he takes in parades pretty often.


He uses an electric windshield washer bottle and mounted 2 spray nozzles that spray the radiator core.


Sounds just easy enough to work really well. (probably work well in freeway traffic too!)

I had mine in a parade yesterday. 90 degree weather and didn't over heat at all. The only bummer part was the 4 speed. My left foot got a good workout.

1964.5 Convertible D Code with factory 4 Speed born July 6th 1964

I'd opt out. I did my first July 4th parade a long time ago. Kids were throwing those powder caps at everything passing by... (Maybe it's a good thing my 357 was locked in the trunk). Memorial Day is a better option for parades. Not many fireworks, if any at all.

69 Convertible, 351W, T5, E-Brock Performer 351-W intake, Performer Plus cam, Holley 4160, power assist, dual exhaust, 4-wheel manual drums.

Your neighbors may not recognize you if you wear a big hat and dark sunglasses

Don't forget to toss candy out as you drive by- it may sway their opinions about you! lol

Working on old cars teaches us patience... and every curse word imaginable!
