Some of the "parade quality" cars in our club are quite nice.  There is
concern about potential damage to the top material, the top bows, the seat
upholstery.  I'm only aware of one instance of damage.  A youngster (about 3
yrs of age) with dried mud on his feet was allowed by his mother to stand on
the rear seat with 18 month old Clark's upholstery.  A tootsie roll was also
mashed into the rear carpet on that same car - yeah, new carpet too.

We provide large pillows and/or thick foam rubber to boost the folks up high
on the rear seat so they can be seen by the parade watchers.

Attachments are scanned with anti-virus software.
