It’s a nice fall day for a drive and really neat old bridge built in 1923. Baxter Springs ,KS
I looked up the arch bridge - pretty cool!
It really is neat to be able to still drive across it. It’s not used for day to day traffic but still open for tourists to drive across.
Cool bridge and one of the best sitting Model As you are gonna see.
Peace, no drama and driving your hot rod……..good medicine !!
This little station is on the way to the bridge in Galena,KS
That stance is perfect
Great pictures, car fits right in.
The gas stations island canopy looks like it is made up of two hoods.
Thanks! Yes it is two car hoods.
My car and my son on the bridge
Very cool! Your son has more guts than I do!
Your Sedan looks awesome!
Cool pics, neat rod.
Would that be the same Brush Creek that runs along the Plaza in KC?
I don’t really know but I doubt it.
My mother’s side of the family comes from Baxter Springs. I spent a lot of time there in the summer as a kid!
Been on that bridge a couple times myself!
Cool bridge! We stayed over there one of the last times we went to the hamb drags and explored a little bit as well. Brush creek in kc dumps into the blue river not sure how or if that connects to this
No. The Brush Creek in Kansas City's Country Club Plaza originates just to the west in northern Johnson County, KS. Baxter Springs is a hell of a long way from here and Route 66 doesn't come anywhere near Kansas City. St. Louis, Springfield, Joplin, yes. Todd and Buzz missed out on great barbecue. They should have driven 40 Highway instead.
You do a burnout on it? Looks like a few have.
No sir. But there has definitely been some!
These Rainbow arch bridges are neat , here’s one near our home , still in use for local traffic, built in the 30’s ….
The National Road “S” Bridges.
Route 40 goes from Cumberland Maryland to Vandalia Illinois 620 miles built between 1811-1837.
We have taken this road 15 yrs ago in the old 37. It’s actually a stage coach route with cool bridges and buildings along the way.
That is really neat!
Those are cool. Especially that they are still in use.
I did a burnout on that bridge about 30 years ago-my 69 Coronet R/T 440.
