Tonight on the “So Cal Scene” on Spectrum News, my segment on historic destinations on ROUTE 66! I visit the California Route 66 Museum in Victorville, the old Richfield Service Station in Rancho Cucamonga, a beautiful restored gas station from the 1930s - now a visitors center), the Wigwam Motel, and The Donut Man. Here’s a snippet of tonight’s episode tonight airing at 9pm.

Why can’t the museum open? Is everything ok?
Hello All friends. I hope every is safe and take care about him(her)self. I'm writing here because of the situation with the corona virus, my wife and i , we have made we've never took the time to do before as many overs persons i think ! :-) And the great new is that our online project about the Route66, is coming.... Collectors, antique, vintage and creations with only Route 66 goods. A website different from all you have already seen till now, i promise you ! www.ROUTE66.store The project is already on line, and hat i would like to ask here (because i think a lot of persons should have time to spend) is to go to see what we are working on and to tell us what is good or what is bad, or that you should do better. The great opening will be on September (because i still have a lot of job to do on it !) I think this community is one of the best place to have critics for this project and i thank you all in advance for your time and your comments. Of course, when ths website will officially open (and if we can come to the Event at the end of August) we will apply special condition for all the members of this community to thank you for your support ! :-) But at this time, we only need your kind comments. Thanks and please all take care about yourself and family. We all think and support you here in France ! Route66.store
