If you have been to a Sudbury Chamber of Commerce Fourth of July Parade you are very aware that a big crowd favorite is when one of the classic cars drives by. No less awe inspiring is the rumble of a classic truck. With this year’s Parade Theme being Sudbury: Past, Present and Future we suspect we’ll be seeing a number of interesting cars, and quite possibly given our town’s own unique relationship with the Ford Family, perhaps we’ll see a few more Fords this year!
So much of our nation, and our history is defined by our car culture which in turn has become one of the most recognizable symbols of our great nation. The fondness for cars spans generations and particularly when it comes to classic cars there seems to be universal accord regarding everyone’s enthusiasm for them.
Fortunately our parade has had a number of great classic cars driven down our parade route and we know this year will be no exception. We’ve often marveled at these cars, and we’ve all been very appreciative whenever one of their owners was gracious enough to elect to drive our route. There also seems to be tremendous pride on the part of the drivers, with their big grinning smiles adding a tremendous amount of happiness to the entire event.
Please enjoy this slideshow that features only a small portion of the many classic cars our Parade has been privileged to feature over the years:
Should you have a classic car, a classic truck or a rare exotic car that you would like to have entered into this year’s parade we would love to hear from you. The easiest way to get in touch is by e-mailing our Parade Committee at Parade@Sudbury.org and we will get you and your vehicle signed up.
If you know of someone with a classic car that you believe would be interested, please forward this post to them, and of course if you are from a neighboring community we would still love to have you and your vehicle be a part of our parade. The classic cars add so much to our parade and we’d love to have your classic car become a part of our rich tradition here in Sudbury during our big 4th of July Parade.
