I saw a couple cars at the...

How long did you spend planning this trip?
I can't imagine a much better itinerary than yours for a 14 - 16 day trip with kids.
News is saying 7.1 near Ridgecrest.
We've traveled all or parts of 66 in most of the last 10 years, but following your story was like seeing it like I did on our family trip in 1960...

I can't help but there are several AMC guys here so maybe one of them will pop in and help.
Meanwhile here's a bump of the thread
Not crazy about the front, but really like the rear view.
I kind of like this car from the side. But I'd like to see more of it, especially the front and back. The front fenders look off ahead of the...
i would love to see this stuff.
I wonder if some lace panels on the C-pillar and roof would visually lighten the bulky look a bit.
There's something for everyone on or along Route 66. If you want a small sample I have 1,500 or so on my Route 66 website:...

With kids I'd suggest...
