Route 66 Forum

My name is Steve and I'm from Adelaide Australia. I intend to drive Route 66 from LA to Chicago in about June 2019 with a very old and dear friend of mine. We will hire a car but what we really want is a Triumph sports car like a Spitfire, TR or even a convertible Herald. Finding anything as unique as this for a one way hire has been very problematic. If any one has any ideas, local info or helpful contacts then I'd love to hear from you.

Steve-- These are extremely rare cars now in the US. Rental agencies would not handle something that old. The only option that comes to mind would be buying one here, driving it down Rt 66 and either selling it or having it shipped back to Australia. Very awkward in either case, assuming you could even find a vehicle.
