Got invited to drive in a Christmas parade in Rehoboth Beach, DE with the 261st Coast Artillery group from nearby Fort Miles. They brought along their 1942 Sperry Searchlight to liven-up the parade route. This surplus unit has an 800 million candlepower beam with a 25 mile range. The rig successfully turned off any automatic street light it got near and the float driver for the parade entry directly behind us had to wear SUNGLASSES during the parade. Awesome!!!!! Videos were taken in the parade form-up area.
