Description

“If you ever plan to motor west, travel my way, take the highway that is best. Get your kicks on Route 66.” Those are the famous lyrics of Bobby Troup, and later recorded by Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones. Woody Guthrie sand about it, and John Steinbeck called it the “Mother Road” in his book, Grapes of Wrath. If you are old enough you might remember the old TV show, Route 66, which had its own iconic theme song. Historic Route 66 stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles, and countless Americans used it to go to the Grand Canyon and Disneyland. This is the highway where you can stop at the Blue Swallow Motel, a “motor court” where each room has its own garage, and a neon sign advertises “100% Refrigerated Air.” On Route 66 you can stay at the Wigwam Village Motel where each of the 15 rooms is a white tepee made of concrete and steel and equipped with a sink, toilet, and shower. Or you may have seen or heard of the Cadillac Ranch, ten cars planted nose-down in the desert. There are so many stories about this road that it is small wonder there is even a flag for it. And with this flag we just can’t charge shipping, not for a road that crossed the country and so many traveled.
