Mattingly Automotive: Official Route 66 Mechanic

Field review by the editors.

Atlanta, Illinois

We appreciated the boldness of this claim, painted on the outside wall of a repair garage, closed when we passed by. Did some review board of distinguished Route 66 mechanics bestow this honor, or just a sign painter paid by Mr. Mattingly?

The garage wall also sports a helpful painted suggestion: "If your car's making a funny noise, check with an expert at Mattingly's Garage."
