2008 Route 66 Days
Car Show and Festival
Flagstaff, AZ

.
This year's show grew to 366 registered vehicles and Flagstaff's Route 66 Car Club took over the management of the entire show when the Downtown Business Alliance pulled their support. The City of Flagstaff was VERY supportive and the car club really came together to make the show a success.

The weather was perfect and the rain even held off on Sunday until an hour after the end of the show.

The next weekend, the Car Club put on a small Show'N'Shine event at the primary sponsor, Findlay Toyota.

I have included photos and panoramas from both events, although photos were somewhat limited by my point-and-shoot camera still being in the repair cycle at Canon (for the 3rd time).

Enjoy!
