Driving The "A" In a Parade

What are your suggestions for driving your A in a parade?

Such as how to prevent over heating, riding clutch, and so on.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: It has lasted 40+years, Should I fix it?

Thanks for the suggestions! I really like the idea of selling the Model A Nails on E-Bay:D. I have already put over 10K in the restoration and I didn't want to spend the rest of my 401K on the pins:)
