Well day number two is over and we ended up in Pontiac Illinois. We saw the likes of Joliet Illinois and many other small towns along Route 66. The Riviera had a heyday today fitting in with roadside landmarks and all the little towns we visited, particularly the old prison in Joliet.
You know the one you saw it in the blues Brothers movie. At the beginning, Elwood picks up Jake from the eastgate of the Joliet prison.
The Riviera enjoyed photo shoots at lots of locations today, a mobile station and an 1920s gas station in Odell. It communed a bit with 65 riviera parked in a garage. Grinning from grill to grill it smiled.
I'm proud of her, my Riviera she got us this far, praying she'll get us the rest of the route!
