Two New Items Available to Demonstrate Your Route 66 Spirit!

We're proud to announce two new items are available for purchase through our Association to demonstrate your '66 pride:

A Funk's Grove Midpoint Commemorative Pin - In honor of the official declaring of Funk's Grove as the midpoint of Route 66 in Illinois, Diaz Sign Art, in Pontiac, IL was commissioned to create this striking commemorative pin.

Waldmire Tshirt artwork.png

A T-shirt adorned with an original Bob Waldmire design - This work of art was created in 1989 by artist, icon and friend of Route 66, Bob Waldmire, exclusively for our Association. It now is emblazoned upon a black T-shirt (made of American-grown cotton and made in the USA) which will be available in sizes Small through 4XL.

It's important to note that all profits from the sale of the Funk's Grove Pin go toward our continuing Route 66 preservation efforts. All profits from the sale of the T-shirt will be used to install solar power and air conditioning to the Bob Waldmire bus, also known as the "Land Yacht" which is on display at our Hall of Fame and Museum.

Please note - the Funk's Grove pins are available now at our Hall of Fame and Museum, in Pontiac, IL. The T-shirts will be available there soon. Both items will also be available for purchase through our website Gift Shop at a future date.

What a great way to demonstrate your support for our Association while showing the world your Route 66 Spirit!
