Thomas Garcia

On Saturday the vintage classic cars, newer cars, trucks with campers in tow and RVs set out from the Tucumcari Convention Center on the first leg of the Route 66 Motor Tour.

“I am from Amarillo and love Route 66,” said Bob “Crocodile” Lile. “When I found out this tour was going to happen, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.”

Lile said there is great fun and a wonderful history involved with the tour, and that Tucumcari is a fun place to stay.
