“iconic route 66 gas station”
Roy's is located on Historic Route 66 in Amboy, California. The town of Amboy itself is in the Mojave desert. The site of Roy's has become an icon for a lonely desert gas stop due to the multiple appearances of Roy's in movies. Amboy has it all: airport, garage, cafe, school, church, graveyard, even a volcanic crater. Yet all but the post office is not operating anymore. "Roy’s Motel, café and gas station are perhaps most beloved and considered particularly important relative to other Route 66 properties because of the remote desert location." says Glen Duncan, Route 66 Preservation Foundation president and author of Route 66 in California. "Traveling east or west, it was and still is a long way to go for gasoline, a bed or something to eat. Roy’s was a godsend for travelers." The World Monuments Fund (WMF) recently announced its 2008 World Monuments Watch List of 100 Most Endangered Sites which included the entire 2,448 mile long Route 66. - BIM.GOV
