Also taking place along Route 66 this weekend: the Rock n' Rods car show in Normal. Rock n' Rods shows off iconic vehicles from across the country, catering to Route 66 history buffs and car lovers alike.
The show incorporates the history of these model vehicles and the stories behind Route 66, along with its ties to the Bloomington-Normal community. Car fanatics say they hope the show will help will introduce more people to these model vehicles.
"Our main purpose is to draw the next generation into this. We want to bring the 30 and 40 year olds and show them how much fun we're having doing it," owner of Classic Auto in El Paso Gary Miller said.
Gates open at 9 a.m. tomorrow and Sunday. The car show is held at the Chateau in Bloomington.
