    The suspense is killing me! Where are you? Have you made it to "The Promised Land" yet? Post some more info. ( and pics) before you get celebrating too much and can't function!! Thanks for letting us all ride along with you on your adventure. This is the best thread going! "The Norwegian Cannonball" goes to Vegas. Beautiful !

    Too bad someone in the know didn't see this sooner. Flat-top Bob on here is in Wellington Tx just 25 mi straight south of Shamrock. He owns a salvage yard and knows all the rodders in the area. Someone would've been able to get the brake line replaced

    You don't want to get rid of her - you & the old shoe have travelled some serious miles together . You're now her official caretaker ! I'm officially jealous .

    I saw your car last night (you actually parked right next to us) at the Orleans. Left a note on the windshield from scrap paper and a crayon I found. Glad the trip was a success and you had a good time! Safe travels!

    but before i end this completely i want to thank everyone who supported me, things like the note on my window last day of VIV i really appreciate it. and a big thanks to everyone i meet and that have helped me on this trip and to get on this trip. meet so many great people and some i already consider good friends and would trust with my life. even wanna thank the ones that said i couldn't do this because you got me determined to prove you wrong, and i did!!!
    looking back its been a great trip and only thing i regret is running out of time cause only did the old route 66 half the way. i wanna come back and drive from LA next time.
    and for you that thinking of driving the 66, do it as fast as you can, cause all this people that are telling stories and making the route 66 experience alive are most in their late 70s and won't be here forever.so get out there and do it, can't wait to see who's next with a thread like this.THANK YOU ALL, WILL REMEMBER THIS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
    if anyone wants tip or advice feel free to ask here or on pm, but just take as much time you can and go from there
