kiwis on route 66
Barstow California to San Bernardino - about 100 miles
Well a good day with only two recoveries, Loaded a Jeep at start, it had no brakes.
The beautiful straight 8 Navy Packard died with a dead gearbox and it was in a narrow windy piece of road. We towed to a straight bit of road and loaded him onto a trailer.
Lots of welcome events - especially very pretty Ms Route 66 girls. We got a huge welcome from Victorville.
We got a huge welcome from Victorville. We bled Jeep brakes here during afternoon break, and put him back on the road.
Also for you 4wd nuts is a pic of a 4wd Chev Corvette with a 454 cubic in engine and a 4wd transmission.
We were hosted overnight by American Veterans (RSA) in San Bernardino. Slept on top of the trailer deck, but huge overnight dew left the sleeping bags soaked by breakfast time.
California sure is a big town. Leroy Cunha (with a beard} is a real character and he lives 450 miles from here but is still in California!!
