A good thing indeed. Gallup. 2002. Gone forever now. Stop the car. Take pictures. Make memories. LIVE! Today will be a memory in the blink of an eye.

Anyway, it shows that this kind of thing, appreciation of old neon signs and car culture artifacts: It must be hard coded at birth.

casitaadventures Along Route 66 - Twin Arrows Trading Post
Burger, Malts and Breakfasts have fueled travelers across this country for many years. I discover that the diner at Twin Arrows was a Valentine Diner built in my hometown of Wichita, Kansas. Over 2,000 Valentine diners were delivered across the country. "Arthur Valentine operated dozens of lunchrooms in central Kansas in the 1920's and 30's. In later years, returning WWII servicemen would build a life operating these diners. He had the lunchrooms built by an equipment company and then delivered intact to their final locations. As metal became plentiful at the end of World War II, Arthur acquired a manufacturing company and began selling the prefabricated diners across the nation as the "Golden Opportunity for Your Golden Future." The little restaurants were delivered fully equipped on a flatbed trailer for about $5,000. If the new restaurant owner financed his purchase, he would deposit a percentage of his sales receipts to make up a payment of about $40/month into a safe near the restaurant's entrance for the Valentine agent to pick up. If the receipts were not deposited as agreed, the flatbed truck would return to the site and pick up the restaurant." #route66 #remembertheroad #arizona #diner #twinarrows #discover #explore #arizonahighways #wanderlust #roadsideattractions #azhistory #historicroute66 #getyourkicks #roadtrip #wander #wanderlust

casitaadventures Twin Arrows Trading Post - Along Old Route 66, Arizona. Then and Now.

Once a primary stop along old Route 66, Twin Arrows Trading Post no longer attracts the tourists and hungry truckers. Twin Arrows closed in 1998. The gas price of $1.39 remained on a sign for some time after. The twin arrows were in a state of disrepair until 2009 when 60 volunteers from around the world rebuilt the historic arrows. The arrows are significant to the Hopi Indians because they symbolize warrior pride. "In its halcyon days,Twin Arrows — a rest stop at exit 219, about 20 miles east of Flagstaff — was a slice of Americana, a gas station, diner and souvenir central for travelers along the famed Route 66; it operated for about 60 years before closing in 1998. Well before that, it was a trading post for the Hopi, who left petroglyphs etched into the walls of nearby Padre Canyon." "Twin Arrows holds significance not just for enthusiasts of "The Mother Road" but for the Hopi tribe, which has owned the buildings and the wooden arrows for about 10 years. (The land itself is owned in trust by the Arizona State Land Department.)" "Michael Wallis devotes half of a paragraph to describe the Twin Arrows Trading Post in his 1990 edition of Route 66, The Mother Road. He says, "Twin Arrows has the look and feel of an old wayside business along the highway. Inside the small eight-stool diner, fry cooks serve up good road grub--steak and eggs and hash browns--despite a joke menu that talks about buzzard eggs, fried pack-rat tail, sagebrush coffee, roasted jack-rabbit ears, meteor crater stew, braised rattlesnake hips, sautéed centipede legs, prickly-pear pie, and lizard tongue pudding." #route66 #remembertheroad #arizona #diner #twinarrows #discover #explore #arizonahighways #wanderlust #roadsideattractions #azhistory #historicroute66 #getyourkicks #roadtrip #wander #wanderlust
