Established in 1926, Route 66 was one of the original U. S. highways. It's 2,400 mile route from Chicago to Los Angeles travels through some of the most celebrated portions of the American West. It became known as the "Main Street of America." It symbolizes American's love of the automobile and wide open spaces.

Route 66 is an American TV series in which two young men traveled across America. The show ran weekly on CBS from 1960 to 1964. It starred Martin Milner as Tod Stiles and, for two and a half seasons, George Maharis as Buz Murdock. Maharis was ill for much of the third season, during which time Tod was shown traveling on his own. Tod met Lincoln Case, played by Glenn Corbett, late in the third season, and traveled with him until the end of the fourth and final season.

The series is best remembered for its Corvette convertible and its instrumental theme song (composed and performed by Nelson Riddle), which became a major pop hit.
