Description

Jamie Saavedra was born on Route 66 in Albuquerque, NM. Her parents brought her home in a Pontiac Catalina. She grew up working on cars with her dad and eventually grew up to be a diesel mechanic. She saved up and eventually bought her dream car: a 1967 Pontiac GTO. "You definitely get that sense of Americana when driving an old American muscle car on Route 66," says Saavedra. "This road really changed our country and how people think about cars, and it’s pretty special to experience it in a car like this, much the same way that it would have felt forty or fifty years ago."

Comments

  • Trixie Added just got to see the GTO. It wasn't on the invite, I just found it. The lady who owns it, if that's her driving, doesn't look old enough, But More POWER to her
  • Kathy Added Good for her. Looks like she has done very well.
  • William Bloomquist Added I felt the same about my 1972 Ford Maverick. I drove it coast to coast threetimes and had it tricked out quite a bit. She rode great and even with a 6 cyl engine, she had a lot of power.
  • Phil Added Nice. Brings back nice memories.
