    Anyone ever do a parade in their Z?

    I was at Dover Days last weekend and there's a parade involved. Small, but good for the kids. My 4-yr-old asked why I didn't drive the "windy car" with the other cars in the parade (she wants to throw candy and toys to people). They had a Corvette club, classics, and even the PT Cruiser club. That got me thinking...why not? The ZSCCA is a good group, we have great cars, we should start doing parades! It is parade season, after all!

    If you hear of one in your area, I say we start getting together for these things. I don't know of another in the DE area as of right now, but you can bet I'll keep my eyes open.

    Been doing 'em for years in the Z and more...

    I let the smaller prom queens sit on the sub-woofer or on the folded top. Heavier folks ride in the seat. I have carried everyone from "Miss such and such" to politicians. Lots of fun. Xmas parade really gets the car decorated.

    If anyone wants some decorating tips, feel free to email me at:

    Not intentionally...

    Years ago, my son and I went on a BWM CCA car tour through Lake Arrowhead, east of Los Angeles. There were about 8 or 10 Z3s and Z4s.

    As we took the nice winding roads, we eventually ended up in Big Bear. As we were driving down the main street, my son pointed out that there were a lot of people sitting in lawn chairs watching as we and the others in our small group drove by.

    We soon realized that we had merged into a annual parade of classic and vintage cars.

    We did the only sensible thing. We waved.
