This November 11th will mark the 80th anniversary of the commissioning of the US Highway System. This also includes good 'ol Route 66.
Quite a few Route 66 museums are planning celebrations, from Victorville, Ca., to Galena, Ks. (where they will unveil the inspiration for Cars' Tow Mater which was finally found) to Joliet, Illinois.
The Rt 66 Assoc. of Illinois is planning a motorcade of classic cars from the 66museum in Pontiac and will be on hand for the dedication of a Route 66 painting, a road statue, and rededication of an original Lincoln Highway 1928 Boy Scout marker.
After cake and ice cream, the motorcade will continue on to Bolingbrook for dinner at the famed White Fence Farm. Please pass the chicken.
Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog
