Recognize Any Thing In This Rare Vintage Video Of Route 66?
There are several recent videos on the Internet of people traveling down Route 66. YouTube creators all hope to make their fame on the mother road.
Recently, I came across videos that predate the era of YouTube stars. Do you recognize anything from this rare vintage video of Route 66?
Traveling Along The Mother Road
This footage is incredible because you see the sights of Route 66 while they were still active. We have lots of photos of abandoned motor courts and ghost towns. You rarely get to see them in their heyday.
This video appears to be from home videos taken on a family vacation.
Nostalgia For A Simpler Time And Way Of Life
Watching these videos almost makes you wish you could go back. There's a certain romantic flair to Route 66. There's the allure of the open road. Then there's the nostalgia for simpler times.
Of course, you also have all of the neon and the earliest days of rock and roll.
No matter what you think of when you think of Route 66, it evokes some deep feeling inside you.
Route 66 Is A Big Part Of Who We Are
Route 66 is a big part of our culture. There are tourists from all over the world who travel here just to catch a glimpse.
In Amarillo, we still have events dedicated to it. For several towns in the Texas panhandle, it's a big part of their identity.
Check out this video, and see how much of the Mother Road you recognize in it. It contains rare stock footage from Route 66.
