Can a travel center really be this amazing? Short answer, yes. This truck stop was on my list of places to stop by on my route and for a good reason. Russell’s Truck & Travel Center is home to a fantastic classic car museum with vintage memorabilia. The beautiful old cars housed here are in pristine condition and are a varied array of pastel colors.

I loved the vast collection of retro items from the glory days of Elvis Presley, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Johnny Cash and the likes. Russell’s Travel Center has so many unique things reminiscent of times past. They had many old toys and nostalgic items. I loved all of the little oddities they showcase here. You genuinely feel like your in a time warp in here.

Russell’s Truck & Travel Center is a classic car and memorabilia museum, convenience store, has a Route 66 diner and offers a chapel. If you’re off of old Route 66 in Glenrio, NM you must stop here to complete your trip!

 

With All My Love,

For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness.

And for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
