#102  Spot the Truck
3rd Place - Antique Vehicles

Jim Arnold is driving this Dodge B-3 panel truck named "Spot." Resa Arnold, his lovely bride of 36 years, and son Jacob are on board for the fun.

Jim has owned the truck since 1971. It's powered by the original Flat Head 6 231CID that delivers a whopping 95 horsepower. Jim and Resa have had many great road trips over the years in this vehicle. The truck has gone as far north as Fairbanks, Alaska, and as far south as Mazatlan, Mexico. The Arnolds recently had the truck repainted and the interior completely redone. Now it's ready for another 45 years.



#103  Livermore Elementary After School Band
"My School Band" is an elementary school band program for 4th and 5th graders. Marching today are students from Arroyo Seco, Smith, Jackson, and Sunset schools. Many of these youngsters just started 8 months ago. Not bad!




#104  Gillig
Gillig, the largest transit bus manufacturer in America, recently move to Livermore, providing jobs for 1000 people. Gillig builds 2000 buses a year, including our local LAVTA buses. This very bus departs for New York after the parade today.



#105  Wheels (LvAmVyTrAth) Rideo Bus
This 1966 Rideo bus is owned by the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority, operator of Wheels and Rapid bus services.

This bus was originally part of Livermore's Rideo fleet. When LAVTA assumed operation of tri valley bus services in the mid-80's, it acquired this historic treasure from the City of Livermore. But the bus was in need of major restoration. Scott Haggerty, our County Supervisor and LAVTA board member, played a major role in the Rideo bus restoration by securing federal funds to rehabilitate this piece of Livermore's history to its former glory.


#106  Wheels (LvAmVyTrAth) Modern Gillig Bus
Transitioning from the past to the present, this Wheels bus is a 2017 Gillig bus built right here in Livermore. The bus operates on Route 580X, which can get you from the Transit Center in downtown Livermore to the East Dublin/Pleasanton BART station in 23 minutes.
