The advertising on this road 66 is interesting and very attractive in its simplicity and its 60s side. I really like it.

Well if you ever plan to motor west
Just take my way it's the highway that's the best
Get your kicks on Route 66
Well it winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than 2000 miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66
Well it goes from St Louis, down to Missouri
Oklahoma city looks oh so pretty
You'll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona don't forget Winona
Kingsman, Barstaw, San Bernadino
Would you get hip to this kindly trip
And take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

It needs another verse for Pontiac IIinois but that presents some rather challenging rhyming :)
Excellent high impact mural capture
