About This Image

This years Historic Route 66 Fun Run was better than ever. I think there were around 700 cool cars, trucks, and bikes for this show. On Saturday they all travel from Siligman, Az to Kingman. Then all day they park down town for everyone to see. On Sunday they all travel from Kingman, Az to Topock, Az.
Going from Kingman to Topock they all go up the back road to Oatman, Arizona. Well on the old Route 66 road you will find Cool Springs gift shop and museum. I stopped there and watched as people took turns parking in front of the store taking photos. I thought this old Ford fit perfectly with the old pumps.

Hi Alex and Claudia, Thanks for your wonderful comments.. I'm really glad it brought back some great memories for ya Claudia. I still enjoy riding up the old highway, theres very few cars so driving is a pleasure, and theres more critters around to try and photograph. Yea Alex it's great that there are people keeping the cool old cars around.

Brings back memories of traveling across the country on Route 66 a few times in the early 1950's. Nice capture of the vintage gas station, it appears to be very authentic. What ever happened to Atlas tires? I used to sell them.
