We like vintage everything…

How about a shot of the vintage station with a vintage Polaroid?

A Sunday visit in 2015 of a 100 year-old station, and a shot acquired by a Type 440 from 1971. A nice shot on a nice day, don’t you think?Scan 21

Details details…

So much fun is in the details. How about this awesome addition, harkening back to the days of running your car over a hose that would ring a bell and notify the attendants that a car was pulling into the station. Here it is, and it sounds great. Come by and check it out!!!!

Station is OPEN! Ribbon Cutting Ceremony! Big Crowd!!!

We want to thank EVERYONE for coming out and celebrating the much-anticipated opening of the Cucamonga Service Station.  The day finally arrived!  We had a wonderful celebration, led in prayer, raised the flag, enjoyed the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Thanks also goes out to Mayor of Rancho Cucamonga Mr. L. Dennis Michael and his associates for attending, as well as the whole Board of Directors of the group that made it all happen, Route66 IECA!

Thank you once again Tony Gonzales for driving this whole project to completion.  And many, many thanks to the overwhelming hours, donations, time and energy from the carpenters, electricians, concrete workers, construction and all the other contributors who toiled in the sun, opened wallets, planned and advised,  and made all types of amazing contributions.

If you didn’t get a chance to join us today, PLEASE come by and check out the visitor center inside.  We are gathering some really fun artifacts, and there is so much more to come.  And take a look at this video to get an idea of today’s fun.  Join us when  you can!

Grand Opening Coming Soon!

We continue to work some additional construction issues; such activities have created a slight delay in our opening of the building to the public.

The grand opening will be coming very soon, and we will keep you posted on that exciting, upcoming event!
