Joliet, Illinois

IllinoisRoadside Attraction

Whether you need a car towed or just want a fun Route 66 photo backdrop, Dick’s Towing Service in Joliet, Illinois (AKA Dick’s on 66) features old cars on their roof and a slice of the Mother Road at a real Joliet business.

The big white and orange building on Route 66 is decorated with a Route 66 shield, aging oil canisters, hubcaps and tools, a cutout of a man in the window, and four vintage cars. Two old cars are positioned on the roof: an old tow truck that says “Dick’s Towing” and a black 1950s Pontiac Silver Streak with “California or Bust” written across the side. In front of the building are two more, including a vintage police car marked with “Car 54” and “support your local police.”

Out front you will also find a small square of original Route 66 bricks and a sign welcoming you to stand on this authentic piece of the Mother Road.
