From the March 17, 2016, L.A. Times "La Canad couple chronicle their adventures on Route 66 from aboard a new Corvette" by Sara Cardine.
The couple bought their new Corvette from the GM Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and picked it up at the National Corvette Museum. They drove Route 66 back home to California. What a way to road test your new Corvette.
It took them two weeks to drive the 2,100 miles. I have to wonder whether they started in Chicago, but probably not.?
