Christmas parade

Every year our town has a Christmas parade and anyone with a classic vehicle is encouraged to join the fun and get in line with the floats and the bands and whatever. One year my twelve year old son and I had been working on an old Nash Metropolitan that he had found, On the day of the parade we were installing the new engine that we built but were running out of time, With twenty minutes left before the parade was to begin we fired it up for the first time. It took five minutes to put the hood on and we were off. We got a spot in front of a friends 1947 Kiasier and told him "If it quits just push us", but with greasy hands and faces full of smiles we made the whole parade.
