…from Saturday September 10th. Thanks to the hospitality of the Berwyn Route 66 Museum folks, I was able to take a portion of their table and tent at the Car Show to meet & greet the patrons and offer my books for sale. I was also able to meet Bill Kelly for the first time. Bill is the director of the Illinois Route 66 Heritage Corridor and Scenic Byway, and prior to Saturday we had only met via phone and email. It was a fun and busy day at the booth, meeting old friends and making new ones, while talking up Route 66 and the new museum in Berwyn.
I was so busy that I could not take any photos of the amazing cars on display. Thus, I was happy to see this slide show on the Time Out Chicago website. I especially enjoyed the photo of the 1960 Buick Electra (6th picture in the slide show) since our family car from 1963-1970 was a black sedan 1960 Electra.
