Route 66 Day 12 Pontiac, IL to Chicago, IL

Woke to clear skies and a 2nd day of no fire trucks at our motel . After a trip to the hardware store for a part to repair the steering column and an hour of goofing around getting it to fit we got the last leg of this quest in motion. First stop was the Pontiac Route 66 museum which was ok but not a real show stopper.
