This site is dedicated to those individuals who like to do-it-yourself (DIY) when building Kustom cars and hot rods. These are the ones who take "it can't be done" as a challenge and like to prove it wrong. People who enjoy spending the time searching through junkyards and data books looking for the illusive part that will work.

Route 66 was known as the Main Street of America and one of the original highways within the U.S. Route 66 was established on November 11, 1926 and is one of the most famous roads in America. It originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Los Angeles, California, covering a total of 2,448 miles.

Route 66 served as a major path for those who migrated west, especially during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, and it supported the economies of the communities through which the road passed.
