Route 66, Albuquerque Photos

If there is one thing that Albuquerque loves, it is classic American hot rods and custom cars. Old Chevys, Fords and other vintage marks come back to life with style. In fact, it is not unusual to have two or three custom car shows running each Saturday during summer weekends. Here are some photos from these colorful events!
