    Make sure you find old Route 66 west of Springfield, near the town of Republic and take it into Carthage, there's a photo opp-an old building caskets were made in ...

    [​IMG]


    and an old gas station there and an old iron bridge you can still cross...
    [​IMG]

    Make sure you visit the old movie theatre in Miami, Oklahoma...it's purported to have ghosts in it...

    R-
     
  17. Good weather forecasted going through Oklahoma until the weekend. Could be wrong but I believe there is more remaining RT 66 in Oklahoma than any other state ( oh good, controversy). Clinton Oklahoma, RT. 66 Museum. Best gas station, Shamrock Texas, BIGGEST steak, Big Texan, located on the east end as you come into Amarillo Texas. Just a couple miles further down the road on your left, Cadillac Ranch with an overpass just ahead to make the u-turn if you want. Take a can of spray paint and leave your mark. All these places are on your route without detour. Enjoy your trip!
    P.S. Be sure to take the business loop in Tucumcari New Mexico, theres a lot of 50's style neon and buildings. Once you leave Amarillo Texas, it's a LONG drive to anywhere until you get to Albuquerque!

    Really enjoying this thread and daily updates. Very impressed at how many miles you've traveled so far with no major issues. So nice that HAMB members have offered support if needed. What a fraternity! Safe travels! Kurt

    I have a new respect for flatheads. It sure sounded good on the video. Now where did I put the flathead I took out of my 48 ??

    one more good day on this adventure, lots of nice roads, got a little lost and used a couple of hours but that is part of the 66 experience i guess, and it tok us tru some great landscape. staying at munger moss in lebanon. one of the old route 66 places i realy would recomend to others doing the 66. but if you are doing the old route 66 thing stay out of wayside in st louis, we went there but the place was so run down we just got in the car and left. and keep the tips coming, looking forward to checking out the feedback here every evening.

    Good morning. Google maps shows a very large junk on Rt 66 about 5 miles from the Munger Moss Motel. It will be on your right as you leave the Lebanon area. It look s to be newer stuff, but it might be worth a stop to see if they have any old stuff or if they know of an old junk yard.

  24. As you pass or may have already passed through Vinita Oklahoma, you went under a large arch spanning the highway. This was at one time a Howard Johnson Restaurant then more recently the worlds largest McDonalds. It's under re-construction now and I'm not sure what it will be. I think Oklahoma may be the only state to locate McDonald restaurants / truck stops, in the middle of the highways, there are four that I know of.

    another day and still much to see, would recommend this trip for everyone but have more time then i have.
    went to the restored dx gas station in afton and they were expecting me and wonders were the old car is, (i parked it down the street ) didn't expect that.
    heating problem is even worse today but got to oklahoma city and hopefully get that fixed and be back on the road tomorrow or saturday.
