Milk Bottle Grocery-Oklahoma City
Milk Bottle Grocery in Oklahoma City is the type of historic Route 66 establishment that you can miss only if your eyes are closed. Constructed in 1930, the tiny, 350-square foot triangular commercial building of red brick is located on a speck of real estate smack in the right-of-way of a busy urban thoroughfare. It sits at an old streetcar stop along a line that ran diagonally across Classen Boulevard, which served as a segment of Route 66’s original Oklahoma City alignment. Subsequent realignments of the highway, first along Western Avenue and then on 23rd Street, remained only a stone’s throw from the site.

The Y Service Station-Clinton OK
If it is true that location is everything, then the Y Service Station and Café along old Route 66 in Clinton had it all. Constructed in 1937, this roadside business was strategically located on a triangular lot that formed the fork in a Y shaped intersection on the southern outskirts of Clinton. Tenth Street, which doubled as Route 66, splits at this point, with Route 66 continuing off to the west and U.S. Route 183 heading south. Situated in the middle of this fork with gas pump islands flanking both highways, the Y Service Station and Café prospered.

Miami Marathon Oil Company Service Station
Miami, Oklahoma:
Transcontinental Oil built the station in 1929 and a local family leased it for $40 a month. Marathon Oil soon acquired Transcontinental and, before long, the station sported the Marathon Oil Company emblem, the Greek runner Pheidippides. Because Pheidippides was the original marathon man, the company’s slogan, “Best in the long run,” was a natural choice.

Coleman Theater- Miami OK
The man who built the theater for his wife. The theatre, built by George L. Coleman Sr., was built in less than a year at a cost of $600,000. At the time it was built, Miami was the third largest city in Oklahoma to have a theatre with a refrigeration system for stable temperatures all year.
It was the only theater in the south at the time to feature major stars Will Rogers, Tom Mix, Sally Rand, Bing Crosby, Jim Thorpe, the magician Harry Blackstone and Moscelyn Larkin.

This was a very interesting trip on Rt. 66 starting from Amarillo, TX to Chicago last July. We traveled in my 1991 Vanagon transporter that was restore completely and fitted as a camper. Not to mention all the great stops we made but we were fascinated not expecting to meet so many people from Europeans countries Norway, France, Germany, etc. There interest seem to be related to the TV Series, Route 66. Nice folks, all. And the stops we made some disappointing but most interesting. A trip we’ll worth the month we traveled.
I’ll upload a brief showing of the more interesting stops. I tend to overshoot photos.
This is one of several trips taken and as a graphic designer, I do a piece of art for each one. Enjoy!

Newly restored GL passenger model converted to a camper (may be a first?) complete with the help of Vanistan (Chris Corkins) and a very nice engine rebuild and a pleasure to work with. Highlighted with scalloped graphics from the 50s and VW Tiguan wheels. Also, I have added a roof rack from a Chevy Blazer which fits the van design better than aftermarket units which look stuck on and hanging on for dear life.

58 qt. Coleman Ultra Marine Cooler fitted with drain tube extending through the floorboard for drainage. Never have to worry about taking it in and out. Roll out baskets for easy access storage.
Van is also wired for 110V. Not visible but on the drivers side where the jack stand fits, is a waterproof plug-in receptacle with a wall plug inside.

And the best part, a newly built Vanistan (Chris Corkins) balanced and blueprinted engine. Can't say enough nice things about the engine and Chris, great job and great person to work with. He's the man for wasserboxer engines. Cruises at 75-80, no problems, and that's fast enough for the VW design.

Also want to thank a good friend (Klaus Huebner-Spring Branch Imports, LLC) who helped with the restoration and sadly passed away toward the latter part of this project. Without his help, I would have been over my head and taken much longer than the one year it did take. Auf Wiedersehen!
