ROUTE 66 CLUB MEMBERS JOIN FLAGSTAFF CRUISERS
LUNCH CRUISE TO CAMERON TRADING POST

March 2, 2019

Some of the Route 66 Car Club of Flagstaff members joined members of the Flagstaff Cruisers
and members of the Highland Rods & Rides  for a cruise to Cameron Trading Post for Lunch.  
About 18 people and 9-10 cars (only one older classic) participated int the cruise.  
Rain fell the entire drive to Cameron and the clouds parted once arriving in Cameron.  
The drive back was very windy and it started to rain again about 20 miles outside Flagstaff.  
The fun of getting together outweighed the weather and was very much worth taking the cruise.

SPONTANEOUS CRUISE TO MISS KITTY’S STEAK HOUSE & LOUNGE -- WILLIAMS, AZ

April 6, 2019
Story and Pictures by Alan St Germain

On Saturday, April 6th, Richard Federico lead the pack out of ADOT to Miss Kitty’s Steak House & Lounge in
Williams, AZ. This spontaneous car cruise of the three car clubs here in Flagstaff was a great success.
We were well received by Mayer John Moore and his wife Kim (Kitty) on this
special 1 year anniversary  of their grand opening of Miss Kitty’s Steak House & Lounge.
Miss Kitty’s is normally closed for lunch, but they opened their doors for this special engagement of the car clubs.
To make the time a little more exciting, two participants won dinners for two for having their cars chosen
as an “Eye catcher” of the hotel and restaurant property owners.
The weather turned out to be great with very little to no rain.
After lunch, a number of participants cruised Route 66 in Williams
and ended up at Twister’s Soda fountain for dessert.
It was a great day, and I look forward to the next tri-club event!
FLAGSTAFF CRUISERS ORGANIZED CRUISE TO ROADHOUSE BAR & GRILL -- BELLMONT, AZ

April 13, 2019
Story and Picture by Richard Federico

On April 13th, the local car clubs all got together and took a cruise from the old ADOT facility
to the town of Bellemont where the Roadhouse Bar and Grill is located.
The Roadhouse, situated on the south side of the I-40 is next to the Harley Davidson dealership
and is painted the same black and orange “Harley Davidson” colors.
The typical bar itself runs the length of the building.
Their claim to fame is that their burger, chicken, or hot pastrami and bun type are ordered then
brought to your table raw. Then you take your entrée to the grill area
and cook your meal to your chosen level of “doneness”.
Finally you approach the topping/salad bar for cheese, condiments and vegetation,
as well as multiple salad types.
All in all, a short but fun cruise.

All Car Clubs love food, and the Red Rocks Chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America is no exception!
On April 24, seven families and six Model A’s met at Coco’s Restaurant for breakfast.
Cars came up the 89 from Cottonwood, Cornville, Sedona, and yours truly from University Heights, Flagstaff.
And one of the main subjects we discussed was our upcoming progressive dinner
running from Oak Creek Village to Cottonwood. Oh, Food!

CRUISE TO THE FLAGSTAFF MODEL TRAIN MUSEUM @ FT. TUTHILL
AND TO THE JOY CONE FACTORY

March 16, 2019

Our Club enjoyed a tremendous two-for-the-price-of-one cruise on Saturday, March 16.
While the weather of previous days was a bit shaky, this Saturday turned out to be awesome for a cruise.
We first grouped up at the parking lot behind Freddie's before caravanning down the 89 to Fort Tuthill .
We then had a private tour of the Flagstaff Model Train Museum. Lead by Curtis Deibel,
we had explanations on their layouts, train control systems and track sizes.
A number of us got a rare behind the scenes glimpse to see the underneath wiring of the tracks.
Check out the intricate dioramas, mostly done by Curtis himself.

An hour later our entire group left the museum and traveled across the I-17 to the Joy Cone Factory.
There Adriana took charge and provided us with a tour of the facility, e
xplaining the manufacturing of the many different types and shapes of cones they produce.
We even got fresh “as it gets” samples which Adriana pulled off of the assembly line.
And finally we got to the pot at the end of the rainbow:
Joy Cone and Adriana lavished us with ice cream cones and sample boxes of cones to take home.
WOW, what an eventful day topped off with a super treat.

WILLIAMS HISTORIC ROUTE 66 4TH ANNUAL CAR SHOW

June 7-8, 2019

With over 170 classic cars and outstanding weather the June 7/8 car show in historic Williams was nothing short
of spectacular. There was a very broad assortment of vehicles including stocks and modifieds. Several of our
members attended.  And Alan St. Germain found a number of compatriot Willy’s owners to chat with.
A HISTORIC ”BACK TO THE FUTURE” MOMENT ON ROUTE 66

The Williams Historic Route 66 Car Show was done over June 7th & 8th,
with cruising the town done on Friday evening and the actual car show on Saturday.
Richard Federico was out cruising Friday, with the doors of his DeLorean up in “cruise mode”,
when a person asked him if he could catch a ride on the back of the DeLorean
in Marty McFly fashion while riding his skateboard.
Richard granted him permission and off they rode through the town.
Well, having been observed for this feat, the show organizers
awarded Richard with a “MOST ENTHUSIASTIC” award
which was presented to Richard by Alan St. Germain at the June General Meeting.
WINONA / SUNSET CRATER / WUPATKI CRUISE

June 22, 2019

The club cruise around some of the cultural and historic areas east of Flagstaff was well attended by club members,
many of whom brought their classic cars for the drive.
The cruise started at the Mobil station on Country Club Drive and the first stop was the Walnut Canyon Bridge, in Winona.
Built in 1924, it actually predates Route 66. Club member and historian Sean Evans provided the group
with an informative and interesting lecture on the structure.
The group then moved on along the Leupp Road to the edge of the Navajo Reservation,
enjoying the volcanic geologic features along the way.
The group then entered the Sunset Crater/Wupatki National Monuments Loop and made several stops
along the way to investigate the ruins in the area.
The last stop was at Horsemen Lodge, for lunch to enjoy great food.

THUNDER OVER FLAGSTAFF EAA/ROUTE 66 CAR CLUB OF FLAGSTAFF CHARITY SHOW & SHINE

August 24, 2019

The “Car Show in a Box”, held on August 24, the club’s first foray into partnering with
the Thunder Over Flagstaff event, is complete, and was a success.
The goal of registered cars for the show was 100. There were 68 non-club members at the show,
with an additional 27 club cars, for a total of 95 cars, just five short of the goal.
The fundraising goal was $2,000.00. This was surpassed as the amount raised was $2,400.00.
The cars ranged from brass era to modern super cars, and the drivers also ranged in age
from the twenty-something 40 Roll fellows to those of us with a bit more age on us.
Hot rods, restored cars, customs, originals, and rat rods were all to be found. People travelled from Phoenix,
Seligman, Prescott and other Northern Arizona locations to attend.
The participants were highly positive about the show while making suggestions
on how to make the event even better. Moving forward, we can apply the lessons learned and
modify the event as needed, within the framework of our partnership with the Thunder Over Flagstaff planners.
A round of applause to all those who helped plan, promote, and pull off this event, with a special “Huzzah” to Richard
Federico. Without his enthusiasm, patience, perseverance, and vision the day would not have come about.
Everyone, stop and give yourself, and your team mates, a hearty pat on the back for a job well done.
