For more than twenty-five years I have shared my passion for Route 66, the back roads of America and the automobiles that traveled them before the last Studebaker rolled from the factories in South Bend through books, feature articles, blog posts, video, and presentations.

My published work includes fourteen books on topics as diverse as The Illustrated History of the Checker Cab Manufacturing Company,  Ghost Towns of the Southwest, Ghost Towns of Route 66, Backroads of Arizona, Travel Route 66, The Big Book of Car Culture, and The Route 66 Encyclopedia. 

Jim Hinckley’s America is a grand adventure –

It as well as technology are happening a great deal faster than when I was younger. As Bob Dylan once said: “For the Times They Are A-changin”. I guess that quote dates me a bit 🙂

Did you find the story informative?
