Fuller Ford’s very own, Mark Spuzzillo, escorted Reds pitchers, Travis Wood and Mike Leake, in this year’s 2011 Opening Day Parade. The Reds pitching duo rode in style in the back of a red 2011 Ford Mustang convertible. Fuller Ford has been a long time participant in the Reds Opening Day Parade. Over the years, Fuller Ford’s parade entries have ranged from convertibles to pick-up trucks to dump trucks. Fuller has had the privilege to escort many current and former Cincinnati Reds greats such as Johnny Bench and Dave Parker. In years past parades, Fuller has also escorted the likes of former UC, and current Notre Dame football coach, Brian Kelly and hometown singer, Nick Lachey’s Choir.
Before the parade, many of this year’s parade participants met at Fuller Ford. Members of the F-100 Club gathered their classic Ford trucks at Fuller Ford before heading off to the parade. The Official Pace Car of the Kentucky Speedway made an appearance too.
