This first photo of the Blues Brother's car was taken on Rt. 53, just South if I-80.
Bubba enjoying the view of me taking photos. This photo by Christi.
Then out of the blue, taking the older of the Route 66 roads, we passed this. We looked at each other and said "no way". No, it is not the one from the movie. However, this farmer build one in the middle of what appears to be nowhere. Beautiful!
We drove by this next spot when it was closing. The gentlemen running it asked me to come in, as he explained the history that includes Bonnie and Clyde. Apparently Bonnie grew up here for a few years of her younger life. She returned about a week before they both were shot down. The story told to me was that they drove up the road and off into the ditch. A police officer went to investigate and was shot down by them.
Bubba happily watching me get wet in the rain while taking photos. Nice to be inside a dry car, huh Bubba . . .
