Arizona Route 66 Association
2009 Fun Run
Seligman to Kingman
May 2nd, 2009

.

Heading out of Flagstaff towards Seligman. The weather forcast looked pretty bad but we took a chance and got out the classic Mustang anyway. 10 miles east of Flagstaff the low clouds cleared and the sun came out....go figure.

Randy Travis brought up the rear in his Cadillac.

The Flagstaff Route 66 Car Club waiting for breakfast. The Road Kill Cafe was closed so the lines at the other places were long.

A large group from France (10 or so) was driving Sebring convertables.

Finally FOOD!

Our table took a bit longer.

Randy Travis brought a new Club Mascot.

We were waiting for the club to start together. When Travis' Cadillac went by we tried to follow but ended up on our own the rest of the day.

There were so many cars we were bunched up for quite a while going 40 mph.

After 20 minutes the lines started to stretch out. At least everyone was patient.

Once again the slug-buggers were out.

Hmm, I didn't notice they were giving out scores.....

Lots of abandoned bypassed pieces of 66 along this part of The Route.

Culvert on abandoned 66.

The older alignment went over the hills instead of through them.

Old pumps out front.

Some cars are part of the decorations.

A fixer-upper (the car).

The crowd arrived behind us.

Everyone was checking out the cars as they came in.

Quite a variety.

And lots of Mustangs!

Some new displays inside.

EVERYBODY was there.

A cool Candyapple Mustang.

Just before we headed to Kingman. Not a parking spot left.

After we got lost in Kingman (next time bring a map) we managed to find the west end of the car show near the Powerhouse Visitor Center.

VR Panorama taken at the west end of the show. We arrived fairly early this year but the crowds had already begun to gather.

The crowd was pretty thick.

There were a bunch of these mini-camper/trailers

Nice and cozy inside.

Electric blue!

I bet this .30 would help clear traffic jams.

Continueing down Route 66; here is a view in front of the Dream Machines Garage.

The Grand Canyon Caverns (whoo hoo I finally got drive-by pic to come out!)

A bypassed alignment of 66. Go figure, the old alignment went straight over the hill while the newer one curves around it. Usually it is the other way around.

The ridgeline on the west side of Seligman. Time to get ready for a Sno-Cap Burger!!!
