The Old Route 66 Visitors Center is a much talked about site along Route 66. One reason is artist Bob Waldmire, who turned this old petrol pump into a visitors center in 1992. Bob Waldmire is the son of Ed Waldmire Jr., who founded the famous Cozy Dog in Springfield, IL. 10-06

 

UPDATE 02/11 : Bob Waldmire passed away on December 19, 2009 in Springfield, IL. 02-11

Check out this gas station turned museum located in the historic section of Williams, AZ. Pete's Gas Station is all decked out in what appears to be Union 76 colors.

Since 1949, Pete's has been located on old Route 66, the main drag through town. Pete's closed in 1989 and after several years turned into a museum and gift shop. Stop by and have a peek when in town. 05-13
