About this Item

140 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Written by a serious fan of historic roads, this is the story of a New York City to San Francisco road trip over the Lincoln Highway during its centennial year. Driving a half-century old car, Denny Gibson covers the eastern half of the century old route as part of the Lincoln Highway Association Centennial Tour. Then, after an anniversary celebration at the highways midpoint in Kearney, Nebraska, the trip continues on to the west coast with a smaller group. The route followed is, as close as practical, the Lincoln Highways original 1913 alignment. The car is a 1963 Plymouth Valiant convertible. It has a fancy push button transmission but the luxury stops there. No power steering, no power brakes, no power top, and no air conditioning. Problems are not quite as scarce as power accessories but there are not many. The old Plymouth carries Gibson from his Ohio home to Times Square to San Francisco then back home again. Much of the return is along the Route 66 corridor with occasional stops on that historic road as well. The book is illustrated with more than 150 black and white photos. Dennys friendly writing makes you feel like youre along for the adventure of a lifetime, with fun surprises around every bend and all the bumps in the road already smoothed out. Brian Butko, author, Greetings from the Lincoln Highway This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780615921990

About this title

Synopsis:

Written by a serious fan of historic roads, this is the story of a New York City to San Francisco road trip over the Lincoln Highway during its centennial year. Driving a half-century old car, Denny Gibson covers the eastern half of the century old route as part of the Lincoln Highway Association Centennial Tour. Then, after an anniversary celebration at the highway's midpoint in Kearney, Nebraska, the trip continues on to the west coast with a smaller group.

The route followed is, as close as practical, the Lincoln Highway's original 1913 alignment. The car is a 1963 Plymouth Valiant convertible. It has a fancy push button transmission but the luxury stops there. No power steering, no power brakes, no power top, and no air conditioning. Problems are not quite as scarce as power accessories but there are not many. The old Plymouth carries Gibson from his Ohio home to Times Square to San Francisco then back home again. Much of the return is along the Route 66 corridor with occasional stops on that historic road as well.

The book is illustrated with more than 150 black and white photos.
