Preserving History on America's Main Street:

The Route 66 Association of Missouri

Experience the iconic and legendary Route 66 in all its glory in Missouri. The state is home to some of the most iconic attractions along the historic highway, including Meramec Caverns, Gary's Gay Parita Sinclair Gas Station, and Ruby’s Old-Fashioned Burgers.

The Route 66 Association of Missouri was established to preserve, promote, and develop Route 66 in the Show-Me State. It was founded by a group of dedicated volunteers who wanted to ensure that Route 66's history, culture, and legacy were preserved. Today, members from all over the country and beyond have joined the Association.

Come explore Route 66 with us! We are excited to bring you on this journey through Missouri’s history and culture as we take you back in time along the Mother Road. It is an experience like no other!

Exciting News!

UPDATES Missouri has approved the tag we have moved into the design phase with them. Once this is completed we are one step closer to having our own Route 66 Vanity Plate. Stay tuned for more updates. Make sure to sign up on the waiting list. 

Copying other’s success is a good thing. Especially when you are on the same mission. Launched in late 2016, the Route 66 Association of Arizona created a license plate to raise funds for their Association. With its sleek, black, white, and gray palette, it was the 2016 winner of the Best New License Plate in the U.S.  The Arizona Association receives approximately $170,000 net, annually from license plate proceeds.

The Missouri Route 66 Association will be applying for our very own personalized plate in 2021 and all proceeds will go to the preservation, promotion, and education of Route 66.  The vanity license plate costs approximately $15.00 additional to a normal license fees.

St. Louis native and fellow roadie, Shellee Graham, is graciously providing her talents to help us create the beautiful design you see here.  To make this license plate a reality we need at least 200 Missouri residents interesting in obtaining the plate to add their name to our sign-up list.  This list is then presented to the state showing “good faith” that our organization will commit to the project.

Be the first person on your street with this great work of art on your ride!  If you are interested in making history and want to be a part of this exciting opportunity, please sign up right now at our website!  

Please note: Final design may be slightly different due to sizing constraints.
