The first part of the journey was relaxing once we got going. We saw a sign on our way to the next destination. That sign is the home to American Motor Racing. We were going to stop by but decided it was to far off our track to visit. Next time we will.
We had a quick stop over at a few places including Isle A La Cache, Willbrook where we found Del Rhea’s the famous Southern Fried Chicken restaurant since the 1940’s. as seen on various TV shows. There was a farm nearby that had a petting farm and this big cock! Being a bloke thing, you just have to have you picture taken with a big cock ready for the innuendo “do you wanna see a picture of my big..” moving swiftly on!
We moved on to a place called Joliet where the Joliet Historical Museum and Welcome centre was located. There was some iron works, Joliet Kicks where I had a pic with the Blues Brothers and a car place called Dick’s who had an unusual way to store cars. The Joliet Welcome Centre had history of Route 66 and some good recommendations of places to visit along the Mother Road.
This place was recommended for a quick bite to eat before we set off again.
As we weren’t in a Mustang I felt strangely drawn to this place called Mustang Corral where I at least had my first fix of Classic Mustangs.
After looking at the cars it was back on the road heading for a final destination of the day and stop over at St. Louis
A good day for sightseeing. 🙂
