ROUTE 66 LINCOLN CARAVAN
FIRST MAJOR CARAVAN FOR 2021 ANNOUNCED!
July 12 -17 2021 promises to be an extrodianary week long tour as the INDIANA Region of the CCCA is hosting the "Classic Lincoln on Route 66" tour. Now first off you do not need a Classic® Lincoln motorcar to participate, as all of our CCCA CARavans are open to any Full Classic® auto that is road worthy. Many stops and activities are planned which should be a wonderful week touring the scenic countryside of the Route 66 area. So much history to see and learn about.
I for one, am looking forward to a fantastic time! (in a Lincoln, of course!) Sign up early as there is only 30 spots on this intimate and fun tour.

We begin with an opening dinner in the historic town of Zionsville, IN where Abraham Lincoln stopped on his way to Washington D.C. for his Inauguration.
The next day we journey to the Land of Lincoln by visiting a Historical Registry Home, Castle Gardens, built in 1898. We then begin driving the famous “Mother Road,” Route 66 to Pontiac, IL where we will visit the Route 66 Museum and the Pontiac-Oakland Automobile Museum.
We make a stop along Route 66 on our way to Springfield, IL where we will tour the Lincoln Museum, Lincoln’s home, and the Old State Capital Building to learn more about our 16th President.
It is on to Monticello, IL where we will visit the Railway Museum, Prairie Fire Glass Studio and a private classic car collection. We will stay that evening at the Allerton Park and Retreat Center built in 1900 by artist and philanthropist, Robert Allerton.
We are off to Champaign, IL for a visit to another classic collection stopping in Newport, IN for lunch. This town is famous for its 1800-foot-long, 140 foot-tall hill where automakers in the early 1900s tested their cars. After our own drive up the hill we will head back to Zionsville, IN for a tail-gate picnic and polo match at the Hickory Hall Polo Club.
Our final day includes a drive to Lafayette, IN to view two classic car collections, lunch and ice cream stop for starters. Some may enjoy a leisurely day shopping and lunch in downtown Zionsville on their own with transportation provided. That evening we will say our final goodbyes at a private dinner at a beautiful automobile collection in Indianapolis.
