Halfway there

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Day 6 of Microcars on Route 66.
A rather deserted stretch of old Route 66.  But they are almost to Adrian Texas, the half-way point
as long as that storm does not eat them up. All cars are back on the road as of today.

Day 2 of Microcars on Route 66.  Caption for the pic says Isetta broke down again in Desert.

Oh well at least Greg (Isetta owner) will get to ride in a nice A/C equipped truck while they go through the desert.

Microcars on Route 66 – The journey begins

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

They started at 7:30am August 8 PST.
Seven Eight Microcars will travel 2448 miles along Route 66 from Santa Monica Pier in California to Chicago IL over the next 2 weeks.
You can follow them on their Facebook page HERE, or check back on this blog to see a daily recap.
2 vehicles came from Germany just to do this trip (the Goggomobil Transporter Pickup and the Goggomobil sedan).
The vehicles are (as pictured above) 3 Vespa 400’s, Goggmobil Transporter, Goggomobil Sedan, BMW Isetta, FIAT 500.
There is supposed to be some sort of Map feature on the Facebook page that take the GPS-tagged photos and allows you to track where they are at any time (at least when the photos were taken), but I can’t find any evidence of that at the moment.
