Abandoned cars on America's most iconic abandoned road. Sounds like a great idea for a road trip.

For a nation that loves the idea of the road, there is no more legendary ribbon of highway than the 2,451 miles comprisinghistoric Route 66. Along the Mother Road lies the detritus of the automotive age: motels, roadside attractions, diners, service stations, drive-ins, and dives. Hidden in, around, andbehind its buildings or abandoned along its roadside hide collector cars, lost trucks, and moldering motorcycles.How could there be a better destination for automotive archaeologist Tom Cotter?

InRoute 66 Barn Find Road Trip,Cotter and his BBF (best barn finder) pal Brian Barr jump on Route 66, just outside Chicago, seeking rusted gold in every state Route 66 passes through. Along the way, ace lensman Michael Alan Ross documents their finds, mishaps, and various adventures. Starting in the Midwest and barreling through Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico, the barn-find bunch continues on to Arizona before completing their quest in Santa Monica, California.You'll never guess what automotive treasure they findpeeking out from corroded garages and behind weary buildings along the way. You can bet every awesome barn find was investigated and recorded inRoute 66 Barn Find Road Trip.

Whether you've only dreamed of retracing US 66 or are familiar with its path but never considered car hunting there,Route 66 Barn Find Road Tripwill take you on the trip of a lifetime.Hop in; you can ride shotgun.
