World Record Atempt: Longest parade of Subarus: MNM Memorial
WORLD RECORD: Longest parade of Subarus, In honor of Matthew Noble Marker!
I was just invited to this and I thought I would pass it along, maybe we could SMASH a record, not just break it and in the process memorialize an up-coming rally legend that left us too soon.... Matthew Noble Marker
This is not my event, I'm just trying to pass on the good word...
Sept 16, Elk Rapids MI...
The Guiness Book of World Records for The Longest Parade of Subarus, is held by Subaru of America, with a total of 339 cars. In honor of Matthew Noble Marker, we would like to beat this record for his birthday.
there are a lot of rules
1. Driver MUST have a valid driver license and copy.
2. fill out form (being made)
3. we will need, car make, model, and license plate number
