Route 66: Dream of the Mother Road

America’s Car Museum brings the “Dream of The Mother Road” back to life with an immersive, interactive collection of cars and memorabilia to celebrate America’s iconic roadway, Route 66.

Route 66 once gauged a growing American economy, connecting Chicago to the Pacific Ocean, the “road to riches” was traveled by millions of American families. A road so quintessentially American, Route 66 has become a permanent part of our cultural memory.

Summer Drive Series
“See the USA in your Chevrolet”

The Summer Drive Series is one of ACM’s rotating displays, showcasing the vehicles that once adorned Route 66 during the golden age of American motoring. The iconic Dinah Shore ‘See the USA in Your Chevrolet’ advertising campaign from the ’50s was a fitting theme for this year’s Summer Drive Series of incredible Chevys. To pay homage to one of the United States’ most storied automotive brands, we will celebrate Chevrolet in the Summer Drive Series – “See the USA in Your Chevrolet” through October 14, 2019.
