This is a cool car--not just a "cool for a Kia" car but a genuine object of desire. #KiaStingerGT
Thanks for the memories, 2017! #bestnine
Yesterday was fun. I created that mud tsunami 😁. #HungryValley #Gorman #Truckstuff
#Nissan went all in on #StarWars for this year's #LAautoshow . I didn't go to the show today so I didn't see the AT-M6 Titan. #LAAS2017 #LastJedi
On my way to level 2 adulthood.
My first #Tesla press conference was as exciting and exhausting as an entire day covering a major auto show. The flood of info was just non-stop. Hope you can deliver, Tesla. That #TeslaRoadster looks sweet. Also, it accelerates like an F1 car. #TeslaSemi #TeslaSemiTruck
#Amboy is one of the #Route66 towns that was bypassed by #Interstate40 and practically killed overnight. It sat deserted and derelict for years and was used mostly as a filming location until the entire town was bought by #AlbertOkura , founder of #JuanPollo , in 2005. Okura's goal is to restore #RoysMotelandCafe to its former glory and open up a museum celebrating Amboy's history. So far the motel lobby has been restored, looking like a #midcenturymodern time capsule, and the gas station has reopened. If you want to see the rest of the town restored, eat more chicken. Also check out Okura's Route 66/McDonald's museum located on the site of the original McDonald's in San Bernardino. #AmboyCalifornia #googie #architecture #jetage #vintagesign #vintageneon #I40
#Amboy is totally worth the detour off #I40 . Just look at that glorious #vintagesign . #Route66 #vintageneon #vintagesigns #AmboyCalifornia #RoysMotelandCafe
Found one of the #GuardianLions of #Route66 . These marble statues showed up a few years ago just east of #Amboy . There are two of them spread a quarter mile apart from each other, about 100 feet from the road. I only found this one (apparently it's the male). To this day no one knows why they're here--literally in the middle of nowhere. People leave offerings on it like a shrine. Someone left a note or a wish in that blue folder. I didn't read it. Hope it came true. #roadsidelegend #guardianlionsofroute66 #AmboyCalifornia
Still one of my favorite views. #Oatman #Route66 #sitgreavespass #OatmanArizona #sunset
Here's the #BagdadCafe . The Las Vegas shooting had just happened when I stopped in so the mood was pretty somber. Will have to revisit on a happier day. #Newberrysprings #route66 #vintageroadside
In addition to being an incredible experience, #MTTOTY was a great excuse to get back on #Route66 . #ChevyColorado #ZR2 #ColoradoZR2
