For these pioneers, it's one for the road

The Globe gets the story right!

With a caveat in the print version on page B7: Trip is history, though unofficial.
At 8:24 a.m., Anne and Nick Najjar were officially recognized as the last to use the elevated 1-93. But Jain and Economou waited even longer.

At 9:41 a.m. the old, beaten Artery was as quiet as the moon. Economou put the car in drive, crawling forward at 5 miles per hour as Jain stuck his torso out the window and waved farewell to the city. "Bye-bye FleetCenter. So long blue sky," he yelled.

"I'm just trying to soak it in," said Economou. "The past is merging with the future."
Soon to be a made for TV movie I'm sure.

It has everything, joy, laughter, tears.
