Illinois' Rt. 66 Red Carpet Corridor Festival-- Part 8: Best Route 66 Mural

We went outside to the back of the museum to view what probably is the very best mural of Route 66 on the back of the building and it is sure a big one.  It is prominently featured in the State of Illinois' tourism 30-second commercials when it has the red '67 Firebird convertible driving at fast speed past it.

However, since the mural is in a small parking lot it is not likely that the great old car (I had a '67 blue Firebird convertible) was going real fast when it passed it.

Sure wish that '67 was still there.

We found out later at Bull's Place that a friend of the manager owns that car.
