Riding around in my automobile...

I"ll unveil our whole motor trip soon.  But in the mean time, here are a few more clues of our Route 66 motor tour.  The owner of this Texaco Gas Station gave us a personal tour.  
It was originally his father's garage.  He's 81 years old and such a sweetheart.  


This restaurant (Cozy Dog Drive In) served the best corndogs and hamburgers.












Of course I had to sneak in an antique mall or two.  I couldn't resist when we saw the giant UFO, Paul Bunyan, and pink elephant statue from the highway. 


We are having so much fun researching Route 66 trivia.  We've even seen the world's largest rocking chair at this outpost.
We're definitely getting our kicks on Route 66.  This was our hotel Saturday night.

I'm so jealous. My family would love to travel Route 66. Being in Massachusetts puts us nowhere near any of it. I'm looking forward to lots more pictures. Have a blast!

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! I would be wearing my '50s dresses and wouldn't my Chevy look great parked in front of the service station! I hope you're singing the song and getting your kicks on Route 66!
