Route 66, Albuquerque Photos
If there is one thing that Albuquerque is known for, it is classic American hot rods, lowriders, and custom cars. Old Chevys, Fords and other vintage marks come back to life with style. In fact, it is not unusual to have two or three custom car shows running each Saturday during summer weekends. These car shows are a great way to experience the local Route 66 culture. Here are some photos from these colorful events!
