    Parade

    Every year the shore community I go to has many events. In April they have two on the same day. At noon is The Doo Dah Parade and in the evening the "Mr. Mature America" contest. Since we have participated in other events/parades in the past we started being asked to participate in this parade, specifically to drive the grand marshal of the parade who is also the emcee of the Mr. Mature America. Here are some pictures from today's parade. Can you identify her?

    How fun! I love your car. Is that a T-bird? Is that Barbara Eden?

    Yes it is Barbara Eden and it is a 57TBird. I’ve known since the end of January that I would be driving her. Last year I was supposed to drive Erik Estrada but had car issues and the year before I drove Regis Philbin.

    The Tbird is mine. Stu has a 63 Lincoln Continental-the one we took all over the country. He also has a 79 Fiat Spider that he thought I could drive((before the tbird) but I can't see over the steering wheel and push all the way down on the clutch at the same time. He uses during the summer if the weather is nice in place of his regular car. He bought it from a friend who just want to get rid of it so it was dirt cheap. The he bought two cars from an elderly gentleman he knows. The man was parring down his collection and sold him two cars for the value of one-1928 Packard(the rebuilt generator is currently in a shipping box on his desk and 1930 Hudson (which is not running and has not really ran in the 5 or 6 years he has had it). He is not allowed anymore cars unless they are made by Matchbox or Hot Wheels.
