Thursday, September 28, 2017 = Along a stretch of Route 66 east of Amarillo, in Conway, TX you’ll find the quirky VW Slug Bug Ranch, where five Volkswagen Beetles are planted nose-down in the ground—a bookend to the more famous Cadillac Ranch west of Amarillo.
We were the only ones here — you park just off the road and walk over to the cars. A cool abandoned building and older car on property as well.
Here’s how to get to these slug bugs: Exit 96 off 1-40. On the frontage road near the intersection of Rt 270. Look for the tall “MOTEL” sign. Approximate address: 9696 Interstate 40, Conway, TX 79068
As you look at the pictures in case you can’t tell what we spray painted here’s what it all says: Roy and Rosie 2017, Chip and Misty, our oldest son and wife (whom requested their name not be used), Amite, La (our current hometown). I hope you can tell that we’re not the first people to walk up to these VW bugs and spray graffiti on them. You are encouraged to do that. They are just one of the attractions on Route 66 that people are drawn to. Here they are!
That was our first fun stop of the day. Next we went on to the much more well known Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo. I found out about Cadillac Ranch three years ago and have been wanting to go there so much ever since. Wait till you see the pictures from that one!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
