I have always wanted to drive Route 66, all 2400mi of it. I drove from San Diego to Columbus, OH in 3 days, and passed all kinds of things I would have liked to stop and look at. I would LOVE to take two weeks and be able to stop when I wanted to, and have the time to really take in the experience. This would be such a great vacation, and would last a lifetime.
Life would never be the same at Midpoint Café in small-town Adrian, Texas – where the population was 300 and shrinking. Houser's 1928 café along historic Route 66 is widely cited as the inspiration behind the roadside stop known as Flo's V8 Café, a neon palace and a centerpiece of the imaginary Radiator Springs in Disney Pixar's "Cars" movie.
