Dirk Howard at last year's Route 66 Organization's Fun Run. Dirk adds, "My Mustang was selected Best Mustang Convertible All Years for the last two years. I hope to make it three in a row! The Fun Run has been an international event for several years with Mustang and Camaro clubs coming from Germany and France. Last year where were over 800 cars registered for the three day event where you get to travel the longest continuous part of Route 66, about 180 miles."
