Our City has a long overpass entering into town from the south on Route 66. The construction was started in 1939 (the year Clarence was born) and halted in 1941 when WW2 broke out. It was finally finished in 1947 and allowed traffic to go over the Rock Island Railroad tracks. The bridge was torn down 1 1/2 years ago to be rebuilt. Today was the grand reopening ribbon cutting. A call went out a few days ago to all the local classic vehicle owners to come out and drive the bridge as part of the ceremony. Ms Kathy and I took Clarence to the designated holding point where he sat patiently for 1 1/2 hours for the signal to go. The Mayor gave the signal and we all started our engines put the cars in low gear and climbed the overpass toward the waiting crowd. Horns honking and drivers waving greeted the TV crews and dignitaries. Clarence made his debut as a TV star, never missing a beat and then delivered us back home. You can see a Video if you search El Reno Main Street events. Clarence is towards the rear of the procession.

Sorry, I don’t have a clue how to do links. I went back and searched and found it is on the El Reno Main Street Facebook page only. So, if y’all have Facebook you can view the video. Clarence is about the 5th car from the end of the line.
