Drive along America’s Main Street / I-40 and you’ll see a million signs saying “Tucumcari Tonight”. So I figured the best thing to do was visit Tucumcari ToDAY – why wait?
I Buzzed west on Route 66, did a u-ey then Buzzed east, taking pictures all the while.
Tucumcari was something that I always thought of as a gas stop – stay near I-40, gas up, move on. This trip I decided to have a good look around and I’m glad I did – now we are getting back into the Route 66 Retro side of The Mother Road.
First stop was Junior’s Garage:
Some selected old buildings and signs:
