Are you talking about the shields that are painted on the roadbeds? You should drive over a few in the Needles area.
I will get you the exact locations and send them to you. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
email sent thank you
I don't know how much time you have to work with, but hope you're also planning to explore the section of Route 66 between Kingman and Seligman AZ. Map ->: http://goo.gl/maps/mxOec That's another of the few remaining intact stretches of the old highway. It still looks "frozen in time" with the kitschy storefronts, signs, etc. Seligman in particular is a fun stop. Supposedly it was the basis for the town of "Radiator Springs" in the first "Cars" movie. Delgadillo's Snow Cap Drive-In is a local institution.
If you have time for an overnight in, say, Seligman or Peach Springs, you might take a 4WD tour to the bottom of the Grand Canyon down the Diamond Creek Road (info ->: http://bit.ly/1157QdG ) You'd need to stay overnight somewhere nearby because it leaves very early, but wraps up by lunchtime so you can be on your way to your next destination at a decent hour.
Hope that helps - I'd hate to see you come all the way from England and miss one of the best parts of Route 66!
YES it would. As that section has some of the most photographed locations on the road. Not that you won't enjoy Oatman and Needles also.
As K-Bot shared there is enough to see and do on that section that you could spend a week there.
It is impossible to see and enjoy the road in one day or one trip. I was asked once how long should one spend on the road, and my answer is A LIFE TIME.
did you find out any locations on the road ?
Not yet but should later today.
For me, best part is between Kingman and Oatman.Road is rather rough and there''s a pass called Sitgreaves pass. You also drive along a goldmine and places like Ed''s Camp and Cool Springs.
The stretch between Kingman and Seligman is a black asphalt 65 mph kind of drive but of course it''s not bad either but no R66 shield painted on the road. Make a stop at Hackberry visitor center and museum with the Vette standing outside.
