RENO, Nev. (AP) — A procession of Model Ts, Model As and other cars will retrace the historic Lincoln Highway across Nevada and Utah this week to celebrate its 100th birthday.

A group of enthusiasts left San Francisco on Sunday with plans to make overnight stops in Fallon on Monday, Ely on Tuesday and Tooele, Utah, on Wednesday before heading to points east.

The group plans to reach the midpoint of Kearney, Neb., on June 30 to celebrate the 100th year of the Lincoln Highway, considered to be the nation's first transcontinental highway. A similar procession began at New York and will meet the other group there.

The group's Nevada stops will include the National Automobile Museum in Reno, the Eureka Opera House and the Nevada Northern Railway Museum in Ely.

Utah stops will include the Willow Springs Pony Express Station in Callao and Simpson Springs Pony Express Station in Tooele County.

In Nevada, commemorative coffee mugs are being offered to travelers in Fernley, Dayton, Fallon, Austin, Eureka, Ely and Great Basin National Park as part of the centennial celebration.
