This thread is for places to stop by and sight see.
Ron already mentioned Country Classics. It's on I-55, 43 miles NE of the Gateway Arch.
https://countryclassiccars.com/browse-inventory/

If you are coming thru St. Louis, take I-64 into St. Louis.
It will hook you back up to I-70 west of St, Louis.
You will get a great view of the Arch and riverfront.
Have your camera ready.
https://www.gatewayarch.com/

Another good place to stop for a break is Crane's store, Williamsburg, Mo. 1/2 mile off I-70 in mid mo.
Country store that is like walking back into a 1930's country store. TPR57C, (Tim) is hard to get out of there.
He always buys some socks?
Their ad says, Boots, Bullets, Britches and Bologna.
Good photo op also.
https://cranes-country-store.com/

Booneville Mo. will also be having their Thresher Show that weekend.
Vicki and I are always headed to KC and don't have time to stop.
But it is a big show and you can see it as you drive by on I-70.

KC River Market is also a good place to spend some time.
The Arabian River Boat Museum is worth taking a tour thru.

Since there will be folks coming from all directions, please post up sights to see along the way.

Edit: Pictures are from when Tim and I stopped in St. Louis.

I never stopped at Country Classics because Goggle Maps said it was 40 miles out of my way each way. But with the change in the BBQ to Fri, I stopped. It is only 15 miles north of 270 so I have been there twice.

Tuts!
How do you know about Ted Drews?
That is a well kept secret, only known by folks that grew up in St. Louis.
And you are down in Georgia!
Have you been to one, or both of them?
Tattle tale!

But seriously, it is a good place to stop and get a cold one.
Out of the way when you go thru St, Louis.
Cold one refers to frozen custard, just to keep the ODSS misfits in line, they may think it means something else.

You probably know about Hodak's also!

Now for the big brain teaser.
If you know or have been to Cousin Hugo's in Maplewood, We may be related!

My Mother lived in High Ridge, she used to take us to Ted's when we would visit. I remember thinking that all these people are crazy to stand in line for Ice Cream, that was the first time, after that "Hey no problem" . Haven't been there in a long while, Mom passed away in 2008. I do tell folk to stop in there if their going that direction. (Oh.. I not originally from Georgia, that's another story) wink

High Ridge, Mo.
Went thru there many times years ago. Hwy 30 was all two lane then.
Summer time swimming and jumping off the bridge at Cedar Hill into the Big River.
There was also an old Mafia hangout in High Ridge back during the probation years. (spelling?)

If Joe, (too many to count) doesn't bring John wheels to the Reunion.
I may do a St. Louis road trip this fall.
Bring some White Castles home for the wife.
Extra onions and pickles!

Rusty Rod is taking a longer way around. I'm dropping off some car parts in Iowa, at the intersection of I 29? and I80. I'll also have a big ole boat anchor in the bed of my truck.


Another quality post.

Do you mean an actual boat anchor, or a Ford?

This is what happens when you live with a house-full of women, the wife and daughters name all the cars:
1960 Impala - "Frankie" (Frank Sinatra)
1961 Apache - " 'Mater Jr." (wrecker)
1972 SuperBeetle Convertible - "Juliet"
1976 SuperBeetle Convertible - "Olaf"
1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce - "Romeo"
