Winslow, AZ to Amarillo, TX, 301 miles. We left a little earlier today, to try and get in a little earlier, it did not work we still got in at 6:20, too many things to stop and see. Of course we specialize in funky old Route 66 stuff, like this restaurant which has been in Santa Rosa, NM since 1956. And they had apple pie, which looked really good for a second breakfast. The place had vinyl booths, formica tables, was definitely a time warp. Pressed on and hit the Route 66 Auto Museum also in Santa Rosa. The ladies loved it, we couldn’t drag them away. NOT! This was the coolest truck in the museum. Back on the highway to Tucumcari for a stop at the Blue Swallow Motel, extremely funky, every unit has a garage and the place is booked every night in the summer. The Santa Clara Valley T-Bird club has booked the place for one night in July. Very relaxing. Can you recognize those ladies? Last sight of the day was………You guessed it, this is the Cadillac Ranch just outside of Amarillo.
Long day, we spent a lot of time looking at scenes like this. Difficulties were minor, Nicholson ground up a loose emergency brake clevis pin in his rear brake drum, it is now replaced with baling wire. Rich had a collapsing drain hose on his AC, solution was to wrap baling wire around the outside so it would hold its shape. What would we do without baling wire. Chuck had another flat tire. I think the jury is still out on those radials. Since all the hoods come up at the end of the day, Pat has decided that the A in Model A stands for adjusting.
