The most comprehensive and authentic Route 66 classic car road trip available

Blacktop Candy’s offers the most comprehensive and authentic Route 66 road trip available. Guided by Garmin turn-by-turn navigation, U.S. travelers planning a road trip on historic Route 66 and foreign visitors looking for a classic car hire now have an exciting new option. But cruising down America’s highways and byways in a pristine ‘55 Chevy Bel Air, ‘64 Corvette Stingray convertible or ‘67 Camaro Super Sport is just part of the excitement. The 2013 Route 66 tour also includes top-notch accommodations – both highly rated modern hotels and vintage, boutique motels – first class ground transportation, an unprecedented fuel allowance and world-class features like daily refueling and cleaning service.

With Blacktop Candy’s, gone is the fixed schedule opting instead for flexibility. Travelers drive at their own pace between the nightly stops and see as many or as few attractions as they choose, free to enjoy the perfect journey reliving America's golden past. A tour advisor and qualified mechanic accompany each tour in a spare vintage auto just in case there are questions or a mechanical issue.

“We’ve restored each vintage car in our fleet to better-than-new condition,” commented CEO and Founder Scott Shinn when asked about the condition of the cars. “I’ve personally driven most of these cars cross-county without an issue. Upgrades like power disc brakes, aluminum radiators, air-conditioning and modern audio with blue-tooth allow our clients to relive the heyday of automobile travel knowing they’re driving a safe, well maintained vehicle.”

Along with announcing its 2013 tour schedule, Blacktop Candy's also launched its new website - - featuring beautiful images of its classic cars, colorful scenes from the open road and stops along the way, plus information about the company and its tours.

Blog articles on the website bring the tours to life, giving tourists an enticing look at what to expect as they travel. One article for instance features Red Oak II in Missouri, a must-see quintessential American small town along Route 66. Visitors step back into a simpler, friendlier time and enjoy Grandpa Weber’s Blacksmith Shop, the Feed and Seed Store, an old schoolhouse and the old Phillip’s 66 gas station.

Blacktop Candy’s Route 66 classic American road trips commence early April, 2013. With four classic vehicles to choose from and eight tours scheduled for 2013, space is limited and tours will book fast. So if a road trip in on your agenda for the near future, now is the time to book your tour.
