If you are ever passing through New Mexico there is a great spot called Tucumcari Trading Post which has an amazing collection of Route 66 and American History from the 1950's and 1960's. It is run by Gary Cardwell, who is very knowledgeable about the history of the town and Route 66 culture in general. He connected me to a few other museums and collectors of similar icons of the past which I will write about in the upcoming days. Gary encourages visitors to photograph his collection of old gas pumps, porcelain signs, and American history.
Tucumcari Trading Post is located on the west side of Historic Route 66 of Tucumcari.
