On June 5th and 6th of 2016 I drove this Mustang convertible from west of Oatman, Arizona to Williams,
a distance of about 150 miles and the longest existing
contigous streach of old Route 66.
Route 66, more properly called US 66, was established in 1926 and ran from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California. It was a major route for people migrating west, especially during the dust bowl era of the 30's.
By 1985 it had been replaced or bypassed along it's whole length by Interstates and was removed from the US Highway system.
