Whether you need a car towed or want to see some vintage cars, this Route 66 roadside attraction is for you. Dick’s on 66 in Joliet, Illinois (AKA Dick’s Towing) features old cars on their roof and a slice of the Mother Road at a real Joliet business.
The big white and orange building on Route 66 is decorated with a Route 66 shield, aging oil canisters, hubcaps and tools, a cutout of a man in the window and four vintage cars. Two old cars are positioned on the roof: an old tow truck that says “Dick’s Towing” and a black 1950s Pontiac Silver Streak with “California or Bust” written across the side. In front of the building are two more, including a vintage police car marked with “Car 54” and “support your local police.”
Out front you will also find a small square of original Route 66 bricks and a sign welcoming you to stand on this authentic piece of the Mother Road.
