    Hi Everyone,

    I have been approached to assist in finding cars for the Myer Christmas Parade on 17th November 2007 (Melbourne, Vic).

    ------------------------------------
    Jonathan:
    =======
    “It will travel from Spring St to Bourke St Mall, containing 10-15 large floats, about 1000 community members and celebrities. We expect about 70,000 people to come and the whole event will be televised on Channel 7.

    We’re looking for convertible cars to carry our celebrities (eg The Lord Mayor and sporting stars) and perhaps a suited character or two (eg Bugs Bunny!). We would ask drivers to arrive at around 9:30am with their cars, and they’ll be done by midday.”
    ------------------------------------

    They require “convertible cars ONLY”. The celebrities will be sitting on the rear deck, blankets will be placed on the rear seats so their shoes do not damage anything. Please feel free to pass this info onto friends that may be interested.

    Interested parties please email the following:

    Email Subject: “2007 Myer Christmas Parade”
    Full Name:
    Mobile #:
    Year/Make/Model:
    Condition of Car: (Excellent/Good)?
    A few Pictures of your car(s)

    I will be sending the above information along with photos to Jonathan. The decision of which cars to use is solely within his team.

    If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

    Regards

    Brandon Chan

    if you have some small and lightweight passengers (female gymnasts spring to mind!) the Lotus crowd may be able to help - www.aussieelises.com

    As an aside - about a year ago one of my mates contacted Jennifer Hawkins's manager and offered my 348 for photo shoots or TV promos etc. He wrote back and said sorry, Jen would look out of sorts in a Ferrari as she is sponsored by Toyota. DUH ! Might try Megan Gale next.

    Aedo: Thanks for that, would you happen to have an admin's email address. BTW: no promises on the gymnists haha

    vegas1: As far as I know it will be sporting stars. I'll see if I can find out for you. Is your Ferrari Red? They did mention they may favor red cars as it fits within the Christmas Theme.

    if you're exteremly nice and lucky and... Have Jennifer Hawkins ready to roll.

    I think 360C might just let his F50 out.

    But then I think it'll take a LOT for him to take that roof off his UFO tho.

    Wouldn't surprise me how many. You'd have to get permits from Vicroads to drive it, and i doubt you'd go to all the effort of taking the roof off, and then having someone wanting to sit between the headrests.

    I'm sure they'll find some nice convertible beemers:D
