The artwork on this very cool T-shirt was created by Route 66 artist and icon, Bob Waldmire, especially for our Association, back in 1989. Now you can wear Bob's design to show your love of the Mother Road!

This black T-shirt is made of 100% American grown, harvested and spun cotton, is preshrunk and is even sewn in the USA. All profits from the sale will go to the preservation of a most beloved Route 66 treasure, the Bob Waldmire bus, proudly on display behind our Hall of Fame and Museum at 110 W Howard St in Pontiac, IL.

As you may know, Bob Waldmire was a faithful conservationist. As our Association Treasurer, Marty Blitstein, says, "Bob was green before green was a color." In honor of Bob's dedication to the environment, it is our desire to install solar panels on the bus. Routine maintenance and an update to the bus' weatherization are also planned with profits from T-shirt sales.
