Classic cars and floral displays

The Rose Parade took place in Pasadena this week and classic cars played a prominent role in chauffeuring important guests along the route.
The vintage vehicles were appropriately decorated by members of the American Institute of Floral Designers, according to the Pasadena Sun.
Designer, Richard White, explained that creating the displays on the cars without damaging them was particularly tough to achieve, but that the challenge was relished by the participants.
A 1932 Packard owned by Clifford Gooding was one of the stars of the show, being that it has been maintained to such a high standard and shows little sign of its 80 years on the road.
A 1933 Cadillac Phaeton was another popular vehicle and this car was decked out in over two thousand flowers, which really added some flare to this million dollar collector's dream.
One of the oldest cars to make it out to the event was a 1909 Pierce-Arrow owned by Vaughn Vartanian. This seven seater touring car was definitely a sight to behold and it was the first time that its owners had visited the Rose Parade during the Tournament of Roses House, but it seems that they could be back next year.
