Day 2 on Route 66

Still hotter 'en hell....still getting lost trying to find Historic 66 and dealing with detours but....
Got to see a lot of "interesting" sites.....see a small sample below:

Bob's Gasoline Alley in Cuba, MO. Only one of the many buildings displaying antique gas signs & pumps....also emus, llamas & other strange animals.

World's Largest Rocker - Cuba, MO.

Original Steak 'n Shake in Springfield, MO. Only one still with curb service. Still haven't figured out how to make your shake in time to be served WITH your burger.

Steve's Candy....home of the ever-popular "Mine Run" candy....I never heard of it either but it is GOOD!

This truck was the inspiration for the "Tow Mater" character in the movie Cars. Located in Baxter Springs, MO....also an inspiration for the Cars town of Radiator Springs.

Packard service center & museum....mostly just a nice storage place for a small collection of Packards....Afton, OK. 

We discovered the "Bacon Soda" at Pops on Route 66 in Arcadia, OK. Good food & every kind & flavor of pop you could ever imagine. Hard to miss the giant, modern-art pop bottle out in front.

Tomorrow......on to Texas & New Mexico
