    Given all the petrolheads on this forum I have a bit of a random question.

    I'm doing a fly / drive in America in a couple of months (planned from scratch by me, much better than one of the packages) for 16 days I have an economy hire car (cost more than anything else) but on the final day I have hired some American muscle (a V8 Chevvy Camaro SS :yahoo:)

    My plan on this day is to drive from Las Vegas down to Route 66 (or what remains of it) as I need a photo - me, muscle car, Route 66 sign. Has anyone done this drive before and can advise the best place to find a nice picturesque part of the road suitable for such a photo opportunity? Any advise would be much apprec, as I don't particularly want to be lost out in the desert! :tumble:

    Cheers

    66 doesn't go through Vegas, head out south east towards Kingman and you will find several parts of it, all denoted with a historic sign. There used to be a Route 66 museum there, not sure if it still exists. About a 2hr drive each way.


    Yep, its still there

    Thanks, Kingman seems a good place to start.
