JUNE 11TH-- "Cars 3" is slated for a 2018 release. Michael Wallis will once again voice the Sheriff. The movie will go back to Route 66 for this one. The movie will also include the significant US-99 in California.
The first "Cars" was released in 2006 and made $460 million worldwide and more than $5 million in merchandise-- by far the most by any Pixar movie. "Cars 2, released in 2011 was not as well received but still grossed more than $550 million.
I have to admit that I wasn't much of a fan of animation movies before "Cars." But I really like them now. I saw the original "Cars" at both the theater and a drive-in. Looking forward to the new one.
JUNE 12TH-- The Route 66 bridge near Funks Grove in Illinois will soon be closed until late October. It is a 1950s-era bridge. As a result, a 4 and 1/2 mile stretch of Route 66 north of US-136 (Dixie Truckers Home) will be closed. while Timber Creek Bridge is being repaired. Sixty-Sixers can go on I-55 to the US-136 exit at the Dixie.
Hopefully they will keep the bridge looking the same. I would imagine that you would be able to get to Funk's Grove for some of that great "sirip" if they have any left.
