The Muffler Men And Uniroyal Gals Of Route 66 (Cool Weird Awesome 526)

Today is the day in 1926 that Route 66 got its name. The interstate highway may not be the only one of its kind, but it's certainly the one with the most memorable roadside attractions - including the giant fiberglass sculptures known as Muffler Men and Uniroyal Gals. Plus: there’s a sculpture contest this weekend at Baltimore’s American Visionary Art Museum - the Honey, I Shrunk The Kinetic Sculpture Race!
