The Ramblin’ Wreck Parade was created in 1929 as the Old Ford Race, which occurred for two years as a race from Atlanta to Athens. However, in 1932, the administration deemed the event to be unsafe, and thus led to the adjustment to the Wreck Parade in order to preserve the tradition. The original Wreck Parade consisted of two vehicle categories: Fixed Bodies and Classic Cars. Since 1932, the Wreck Parade has been an annual tradition, with the exception of 1942 and 1943, due to the gas shortages during World War II.
