Rt. 66 Souvenir Shop: Flag of License Plates

The old gas station is now a Route 66 souvenir shop. The flag made from car tags is amazing, plus they have a Doc Hudson and a Big Boy (holding tires instead of a burger). The canopy over the gas pumps is made out of car hoods, one of many great touches. Friendly-family owners.

American Flag From License Plates

Right off of Route 66 in Galena is a restored Texaco service station that serves as a souvenir shop. Inside the owner has several unique creations that are a repurpose of Route 66 lore, and on an outside wall is an American Flag mural made from license plates.

The American flag in license plates concept is commonplace, but one with exclusive Kansas tags might be homemade (vs. ordered from a catalog).
