On Saturday morning, a portion
of the Route 66 celebration in Lincoln was to include a vehicle
parade from Latham Park in downtown Lincoln all the way out to the
Mill on 66 – Route 66 Museum.
While the parade did go on, the turnout was not as large as one
might have hoped. The vehicle parade was planned and intended for
those who were interested to bring out their classic and vintage
automobiles to travel the course that was once known as Route 4,
before Route 66 was built.
However, most car collectors don’t bring their vehicles out in
threatening weather. So the parade consisted of about a dozen
vehicles. However among those included in the parade were a couple
of nice entries, such as one antique automobile, the “Route 66
Chick,” an entry by the Salt Creek A.B.A.T.E. and a vintage army
vehicle driven by Patrick Doolin.
