On my trip through New Mexico we hit the famous Route 66 at a place called Tucumcari, not far from the border with Texas. It's a small town and it's like stepping back into the 1950'/60's as most of the buildings in the main street look as if they're frozen in time in that era. Here is a taste of some of them, along with vintage cars and a genuine 1950's (or maybe earlier?) diner, where the food was very good!
|Classic car, classic motel|
|Colourful accommodation at the motel|
|You are on Route 66!|
|This motel didn't fare so well....|
|Diner sign on the main street|
|Inside the diner - like stepping into a 1950's film set|
|Vintage garage and cars on main street|
