Kingman, AZ pt 2

Toured the historic section of Kingman, visited the Route 66 museum and the Bonelli House. The history of the route is quite interesting and the creation of the Interstate certainly devastated a number of towns. With faster vehicles and longer drives between stops there was less need for the many hotels/motels/restaurants and gas stations. Some have survived as tourist destinations but as we drove out here you could see many abandoned buildings that had been bypassed by I40.

The museum had an old Studebaker on display. There was also an electric car section for defunct products.

Classic car dealer had some nice vehicles in the showroom.

Spotted some nice project trucks sitting in a lot at the side of Hwy 68 too. No flatbed with me so I can’t bring any home. 🙂
