A great loss for Route 66 lowbrow humor seekers.

Old Route 66 Gas Station

Cool memorabilia and antiques at the old Route 66 station, not far from the highway. Worth a quick stop!

Funny sign. Doesn't look like it opens anymore, but we enjoyed the drive by since we were in town.

Frank's Route 66 Place

I cannot put my finger on...nor can any other true trooper traveling down Route 66, as to what it is exactly that draws a person of sound mind to Frank's. Could be the truck sticking out of the front of the station, literally...with a sign that says it's for sale. You guessed it -- half off. It's the corny stuff like this that draws people, I guess. He gets folks from all walks of life, on bikes, Harleys, walkers, Roadsters...and he is just a truly lovely human with a wide grin, bright eyes. A character full of character. Much memorabilia and kind of weird stuff and ummm... well, inventions that probably had no purpose for being invented. Just something for Frank to do, I guess.

Oh, and soda is only 25 cents from the machine.
