WHAT IS THIS EVENT?
The Route 66 Street Legends Tour is similar to a HOT ROD Magazine “Power Tour”
where you can join along with the procession anywhere, at any time, for as many miles as you’d like.
 It’s a rolling caravan, cruise and car show... together in one event!

WHO CAN CAN PARTICIPATE?
This event is open to ALL PONTIACS & GMC TRUCKS, both old and new.
Although this event is sponsored by the GTO Association of America,
you need not be a member of the club to participate.
We do ask you to please REGISTER though (free of charge)
so that we can better plan for the events/activities.

WHERE AND WHEN?
The event officially begins in Pontiac. Illinois following the GTOAA Regional Meet
at the Pontiac-Oakland Museum, on Monday, September 17, 2018.
Download the FULL SCHEDULE at www.gtoaa.org
Look for the  "Route 66 Street Legends" tab on the left side of the page.
(schedule subject to modification, so be sure to check back often!)

The tour will then head west, with pre-planned stops and meet-up locations each morning.
Again, check the FULL SCHEDULE to learn the "where and when" for each day.

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN ARIZONA?
The three active Pontiac/GMC Truck clubs here in Arizona plan to welcome
the westbound group when it reaches Flagstaff on Friday, September 28.
Our series of activities invites ALL PONTIAC & GMC TRUCK owners and enthusiasts
to then join along as the Route 66 Street Legends caravan continues its journey
west towards Kingman, Arizona on Saturday.
The event officially ends in nearby Needles, CA on Sunday, September 30, 2018.

Come join the fun!

IS IT REALLY FREE TO PARTICIPATE?
Yes, the event is FREE, but you are still responsible for your own food, travel and lodging expenses.
You are urged to make your overnight lodging reservations soon.
Do so right away... don’t risk being left out!
