RETRO 66-Re-Live the Route is a 501c3 non-profit Route 66 Revitalization project. Join us in creating a 45' wide x 13 1/2' high wall of 1236 license plates with the map of the route embedded in 66 customized turquoise plates on a semi-trailer on Route 66.

RETRO 66-Re-Live the Route is a 501c3 non-profit Route 66 Revitalization Project. We are a completely volunteer organization.

Our Purpose is to identify, develop, and promote our areas resources, history and uniqueness to create an enriching and authentic Route 66 visitor experience.

Our request:

The purpose of this fundriser is to construct a 45' long and 13 1/2' high wall of license plates on Route 66 (NM333) in New Mexico with the map of the route embedded in turquoise license plates customized designed by you. 

The Wall

We estimate the cost of materials to be around $3,000 for poles, support lumber, backboard, hardware, liquid nails to secure the plates and the rental of backhoe, power tools and scaffolding.

Our appreciation to the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Department who donated the license plates.

If we receive enough funding (additional $900) we will install a camera that when you press a button on the sign, would take a photo of those standing in front of the sign and after review to ensure appropriateness, post it on our facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/Relivetheroute/

Additional funding received will go towards construccting a solar powered Route 66 Interpretive Center and Museum inside the 45' long trailer.

Your customized turquoise plate will be installed on this wall regardless of the number of plates purchased however, only the first 66 will be on Route 66. The others will be placed around the perimeter.

The License Plate Memorial Wall trailer will be Home-Based at Bob Audette's historic property at the corner of Hwy 217/Mountain Valley Road on Route 66 West of Edgewood New Mexico. Bob has been called the, "Guardian of the Route" due to his many efforts to preserve the history and monuments along the route. 

Your donation will help make this project a reality and help carry on Bob's committment to the Route.
