Route 66 News

Video from Arizona’s Historic Route 66 dedication

On a weekend when Angel Delgadillo’s story is being featured by the Associated Press comes this video from 1987 that was just posted on YouTube.

It’s a report by KTSP-TV in Phoenix on the official dedication of Historic Route 66 in Arizona from Seligman to Topock. You’ll see a glimpse of Angel’s now-deceased brother Juan, plus the beginnings of what became the Arizona Route 66 Fun Run.

Commenting on the festivities, the reporter said: “Old Route 66 in Seligman probably never saw this much traffic at any one time, and it might never quite seem like this again.”

He was wrong on both counts.
