Route 66

"If you, ever plan, to motor west..."

Join us as we get into the plush front seat of our convertible traveling down Route 66 (dice hanging from the rear-view mirror is optional, but it’s the bomb!). Enjoy this open road tour…no grades, no papers, no tests…not too bad, daddy-o!

Learn all about Route 66 across America. Go from state-to-state visiting landmarks, stopping by roadside attractions, and just cruising along seeing the sights. Not only do we pause along the way to see the wonders of the road, but we'll learn interesting tidbits about the route and its history and allure as we continue our journey. What a great way to get educated about the road as it approaches its 100th anniversary in 2026.

One interesting aspect of any course on faBgear education is that once you enroll, this course is always available to you. Whether you are going through it the first time or later re-visiting it to brush up on your knowledge, it will be there. And if any new content is added to the class (text, lessons, images, videos, etc.), you will be updated to the latest and greatest version of the course at NO CHARGE.

So shine up that chrome, burn some rubber, leave the all show and no go at home, pack some fab and hopped up shades, tune up your cool pipes, put some limited bread in your wallet, polish your fine as wine headlights, and see ya later alligator as all the cool cats head out!

Rock and roll will never die! This course is part of the retroPOP series.
