Route 66 U.S.A represents a part of American motorist evolution and
draws on the nostalgia of a time when travelers of yesteryear took to
the pavement with a sense of adventure and California dreams.  GreenLight translates this period of history through a
mix of retro and modern-day cars.  Highlighting
popular sights and scenes found on the westbound journey.


 


Each
car in the series will be packaged with a Route 66 trading card that
highlights a stop along the highway.  When
deciding which tourist attractions would go best with their respective
cars, GreenLight had to define what makes a great Route 66 business.  The number one piece of criteria; you’ve got to have a
gimmick. These stops all are an
added reason that Route 66 gained its acclaim into motorist’s
notoriety across the US.


 


The
road side stops and attractions range from the modern and new, drawing
on a young wave of Route 66 enthusiasts to the aged and hardly recognizable points that have stood ground since
inception.  Route 66 holds a large bit of mystic,
and tells a story of adventure, independence, long distance travel and
our cultural revolution. 


 


The
cars chosen to represent alongside these destinations are reflecting of
the personality and time period of which the location was established.  Creating a great piece of collectible memorabilia for
a route that paved the way into modern day automobile appreciation.

The '65 D100 step-side is one of my favorite GreenLight releases. Super stoked!

I think I have the long bed smooth side version, not sure if I have the step side or not. I was looking at buying a D-100 in high school. Ended up with something else. Kind of wish I'd have gone with the pick up now.
