Default Birthday Party

Planning a Birthday Party for my 1928 Special Coupe sometime in May this year. (She'll be 90 years old) Any fitting party ideas for the old girl?

Maybe a little drink of 40 year old scotch in the gas tank? Just to remind her of her youth!

I did that for my tudor's 80th birthday, and had friends, cake, snacks, and poured some vodka in the radiator!

Would 100 proof vodka be considered too much grain alcohol for a birthday? I'd think she'd need a ride to burn the extra juice out of her system.

Treat all the neighborhood kids you know to a Sunday ICE CREAM treat with your "A" parked right outside.

Yeah, check out how Henry Ford celebrated his birthday including cake models of his favorite Model A's:

This photo is an era original press release photo showing Mr. Ford cutting a birthday cake at a private celebrations given by his closest friends when he turned 65 years old (July 1929 according to the photo description).

Happy Birthday,

well considering the 1.75L plastic jug of vodka at walmart is like $7 - need about 11.4L of vodka (3 gallons) is roughly 6.5 bottles so thatX$7 = about $46 haha

id be more worried about near invisible vodka fires more than a vodka explosion haha

Some of you may not be old enough to remember that alcohol was sold for antifreeze in the "olden dayz".
One of the name brands was Zerone. It was ethyl alcohol denatured with methyl alcohol so you couldn't drink it.
It would boil off at around 150F but that usually would work in cold weather.

By the way, it was purple and worked fine as fuel in the race car.
