Wreck Parade Interest Form
The Ramblin’ Wreck Parade originated with the Old Ford Race in 1929, which was a 70-mile race from Atlanta to Athens. In 1932, Dean Floyd Field suggested a safer parade of contraptions instead, and the Ramblin’ Wreck Parade has been held on Tech’s campus ever since, with the exception of 1942 and 1943 due to gas shortages during World War II. The Wreck Parade originally consisted of two vehicle categories: Fixed Bodies and Classic Cars, with the addition of the third category, Contraptions, coming in 1944.

*** Due to COVID - 19 we will not be featuring contraptions. ***

To keep the Ramblin' Wreck Parade as safe as possible, this year the parade will be a car parade, consisting of classic cars and decorated vehicles (fixed bodies) that will travel a route around campus. The parade will be Sunday, October 11th. A video produced by The Georgia Drones featuring drone shots, participant interviews, and judge commentary will premier October 17th, Homecoming morning!

Vehicle Category Descriptions for 2020
*** More information will be sent to you about the category indicated below ***

Classic Car: A vehicle at least 25 years old.

Fixed Body: A fixed body is any aesthetically pleasing assembly of parts. It may be towed by or attached to a car or other vehicle, or may be a decorated car/vehicle itself. The fixed body is reminiscent of a traditional parade float and must have at least 75% of the surface covered (with pomp, poster board, card board, etc.). It is the same still as it is moving. The parade chairmen have the final say as to what is and is not a fixed body.
