Route 66

Route 66 is quite literally the framework of America. Formalized on November 11, 1926, the two-lane highway system connected Chicago with Los Angeles, facilitating massive amounts of westward travel that spurred economic growth all along its route.

Dubbed the Mother Road by John Steinbeck in his novel, “The Grapes of Wrath”, the legendary Route 66, one of the first all-weather roads to the west, helped people affected by the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression migrate toward better opportunities in California.

During World War II, Route 66 was crucial to the U.S. military, moving equipment from one industrial center to the next and ultimately overseas. Not long after, the lanes filled with families embarking on road trip vacations. With more than 2,400 diagonal miles to drive through, kicks were abundant for all kinds of travelers.

Unfortunately, the passage of the Interstate Highway Act of 1956 meant that Route 66’s days were as numbered as its mile markers. Within 20 years, the historic and landmark-laden highway was replaced with bigger interstates, like 55, 44, 40, 15 and 10.

As the country celebrates Route 66’s 90th birthday in 2016, motorists have a renewed interest in the original highway. More than 80 percent of Route 66 remains drivable in the eight states it crosses, accessible as county or service roads, state highways and historic trails. Regardless of modern-day progress, this “Main Street of America” will always be a travel trendsetter.

This is a perfect tribute to the Mother Road. The parts that are supposed to be shiny are very shiny. Makes the matte detail well .Before the Interstate highway system came along Route 66 was the way to go from east to west or vise versa. Route 66 was a real treat to enjoy the American culture. Now the highways all look the same. This beautiful round is a celebration of that place in time.
