Amarillo is an overnight stop tonight for members of the Jaguar Club from the United Kingdom. Approximately 125 people in 60 cars will be touring Route 66 from Chicago to L.A. The cars were shipped from the UK to Chicago to start the trip. Tonight they are in Amarillo. We expect them to arrive throughout the day and they are staying at the Best Western Amarillo Inn on Coulter. We anticipate they will arrive in small groups and probably not in one large caravan.

Tonight they are having dinner at the Big Texan about 7 pm. They have also received suggestions to visit our length of Historic Route 66, Palo Duro Canyon State park, Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum and Vintage Cars of Amarillo. It is up to the individual drivers to decide on the attractions they may visit.

This is a great photo opportunity and story for your viewers and readers. CVC contacts for this group are Eric Miller (cell- 584-6792) and Jutta Matalka (cell- 683- 3676)
