Along this stretch of Route 66 east of Amarillo (I-40 exit 96) you'll find the quirky VW Slug Bug Ranch, where five Volkswagen Beetles are planted nose-down in the ground—a bookend to the more famous Cadillac Ranch west of Amarillo. Other nearby roadside icons include the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Britten leaning water tower at Groom.
