Route 66

Because of one man's dedication to a highway, Route 66 stills exists today. Angel Delgadillo is truly the "angel" of Route 66. After I-40 was built, Route 66 was all but forgotten--Angel couldn't let that happen. He was born in a house on Route 66 just months after it was built. He opened a barber shop, a pool hall, and now a gift shop along the route. His children are the ones who run the gift shop now but he still spends his time there; meeting tourists; and taking pictures with them. historic Route 66
