Motor Tour 2014: Our 25th!

Our 25th Annual Motor Tour is coming June 13 - 15, 2014 (Father’s Day weekend)! We’re looking forward to an extra-special celebration along Route 66.


This year, the tour starts south and will include an opportunity to cross the historic Chain of Rocks Bridge at the beginning of the tour!

Wondering what a Motor Tour is? Read a complete description in, So What Is a Motor Tour Anyway? We’re sure you’ll be inspired to join us for family fun and nostalgia along our Illinois section of America's Main Street, where Route 66 begins!

We hope you’ll save the dates and join us for a fun weekend touring the Mother Road! Plans are being made and details decided by our Motor Tour committee as we speak. Further updates and your chance to register to participate are coming soon.

We had a great time doin this. We met alot of good people and even ate at the spot of the original Ariston Cafe. It's called the lucky dog now but good food.

25 years! Still having fun on the tour.

Great choice in photos by the way, in front of the red vette is my former toy a 1963 Buick Riviera. Sadly she's not in my posession anymore but I still look forward to the 66 cruz every year no matter what I'm driving.
