Default Christmas parades in N.Z.

This photo is of our Grand children in the Rumble seat of our 32 which we attended too, at a Local Hawera Christmas Parade which was watched by several thousand spectators.

That item on the road was not from our 32.
Trevo, nice hearng from you, I will not be attending the Art Deco and I will not be attending the Art Deco, and all the best to you for Xmas & New Year too.
The 32 was only parked on the right hand side of the road David, at that time.
The 32 will remain in the family when I am gone as they are all very interested in Ford cars.

Love your 32 Ford Deluxe Three Window Coupe. I notice that it has been converted to Right Hand Drive. You Kiwis travel in Style.

I have built our 1932 -3/W out of mainly N.Z. original mechanical and other components.
The bumpers and the spare wheel cover I made out of Stainless Steel, as well as a lot of other parts, and what parts I could not obtain I made.
The 32 is actually registered as a new original N.Z. car.

Beautiful car. Can't beat the color combo. Been thinking about doing my 36 Tudor that way. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Pat

Beautiful car Ian. I bet the kids had a ball. How long did it take you to make the stainless steel bumpers? You are a very crafty guy. Take care and Merry Christmas to you, Jeanette and all of your family and friends. Jim

Hey Ian, your Grandkids are ALMOST as cute as mine.

Beautiful car.

I had my 1913 Model T in the Feilding Christmas parade last Sunday. Despite the fact that I had fitted a water pump it still got pretty hot . The trouble is when that happens and you're in a parade there is no where to go. Luckily for me it was a breezey day and we turned a corner straight into a reasonable wind and the temperature dropped just before we boiled . Karl
