Motorists determined enough to be the first ones to drive through the Devil’s Slide tunnel now have a chance to grease the wheels a bit.
A Caltrans-sanctioned committee is seeking applicants who are willing to pay their way to be a part of the tunnel’s historic opening later this year, the Half Moon Bay Review reports.
Tunnel Opening Day Celebration Vehicle Parade Committee wants vehicles representing different decades of the past century of motor vehicles – from the 1950s muscle cars to 2012 hybrids.
Fees for driving through the tunnel first range from $100 to $3,000, the Review reports.
"Because it's a new thing that's happening … they thought it was a good way to promote both Pacifica and Half Moon Bay," Pacifica resident and parade coordinator Mitch Reid told the Review.
"We want to give both the local cities an opportunity to be involved with it."
