Check out Joe and Aggies cafe in Holbrook, AZ. One of the places that was the inspiration for the movie Cars...

To think big rigs drove this road years ago!!
Thank you for the explanation.

As a kid I would keep a look out for Twin Arrows" and "Two Guns", a pair of towns in NM?AZ? They had giant guns and arrows sticking out of the ground on each side of town.

Lots of things to see and do all along the Oklahoma section of Route 66. We ride it often on our trike. TravelOK.com Homepage | TravelOK.com - Oklahoma's Official Travel & Tourism Site has alot of information on their website including a magazine usually available at travel centers but can be obtained free by request on the website. Good luck and enjoy what i think is the pace of yesteryear, a good thing.
Sounds great! Had a bike shop in northern NM back in the '70's. Worked on about everything ever made back then (ever hear of an AJS, Bultaco, and probable heard of Hodaka?). Museum will be a must stop. Many thanks!

The POW WOW has great lunch buffets on Monday's (I think) it Mexican food and really good too.
Planning on spending a night in Tucumcari, will check out Kix/POW WOW - Thanks!

Route 66 Must See Sites?

Ya gotta stop at the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook. Spend a night for old time's sake. Or, at least take a photo or two. A friend and I drove Rt 66 end to end in the summer of '60. We had a 2-dr '55 Chevy V8 BelAir, stick. Coral and gray. We were a sucker for one of those canvas bags My wife and I stayed there in the summer of '07. No '55 Chevy. Thank goodness they have added a/c to the wigwams. That's about all they did, too. Enjoy the drive.

Here's the web page for those water bags. Canvas Specialty Tents, Fabric Structures, Canopies and Awnings
I did Rt66 twice and loved it.
