When my father was battling cancer he began watching “Diners, drives, And Drive in’s” with Guy Fieri. So I told him after he completed Chemo we would rent an RV and take a month or so off and go visit all the places he had on the show that he wanted to go to. Well as Cancer would have it, he finished chemo and it had already already to his brain. He lost his fight to cancer, however a group of close friends, and family decided to make the trip of Route 66 In honor of him, so that’s what we did. I brought my GT500, and 03 cobra, brother in law brought his 95 corvette, my brother brought his C7 Z51 corvette, another buddy in his 2014 GT, and last but not least our buddy with his 1996 Trans Am.

Where was the picture taken by the old gas station?

Sinclair gas station at the Wagon Wheel Motel, Cuba, MO​

Thanks for sharing.

I remember when I was a kid my parents took a mini-vacation in the early 70’s and stayed at the wagon wheel. I never knew where it was. I just remembered the name. They seemed like it was a big deal (we didn’t grow up with tons of money). I had to stay home with grandma.

Of course, I’m sure it was the cats pajamas back then. Unfortunately by the time we arrived it was late, and had closed. I stopped there because it was originally the “Phillips Gas station” my fathers name was Phillips.
