  • We stopped and took a photo of the Route 66 Monument. We took a picture of both the front and the back. Its located by the convention center. It takes just a couple of minutes to see.  more »

  • Route 66 sculpture sculpture is just outside the Tucumcari Convention Center. It is located at the exit of the city to the 1500 W Route 66 Blvd. It's a brilliant chrome sculpture which makes a tribute to the chrome of the cars of the 1950s and the mother road is Route 66. It's the artist Tom Coffin, who was chosen by the commission of Tucumcari: the New Mexico Highway Dept and the Arts Commission of the New Mexico to create this sculpture. It is set on a sloping base that looks a bit like a Tex-Mex temple made of tires, sandstone, two-way contours of the road. Dedicated in 1997, the base is topped with a chrome, a Cadillac fin, three rear lights, and a pair of tubular type Hippie Font sixes. The entire sculpture is headed west.
