Historic highway convoy set for September 6-15, 2012 on Route 66 from IL to CA
Aug 14, 2012 10:36 AM
Beginning September 6 in Morris IL, the American Truck Historical Society will hold its first Historic Highway Convoy. The convoy will follow Route 66, the famous "Mother Road," from Illinois to California.
In conjunction with Travel Centers of America, which is celebrating its 40th Anniversary, daily truck shows will be held at T/A or Petro truck stops at each of the nine locations (Morris IL, Troy IL, Joplin MO, Oklahoma City OK, Amarillo TX, Albuquerque NM, Gallup NM, Kingman AZ, and Barstow CA).
Each show will take place from 11 am to 7:30 pm. The convoy vehicles will arrive around 4 pm to conclude with an expanded truck show. The convoy will make its final stop on September 15 in conjunction with the Route 66 Rendezvous, the annual automotive event held in San Bernardino CA.
The event is open to the public, and ATHS invites everyone to stop and enjoy the ATHS Historic Highway Convoy as we "Get our Kicks on Route 66". Trucks from local ATHS members, an ATHS booth display and booth displays by the Prime Movers and Heavy Hauler sponsors will be present at each location.
