I contacted the Missouri Department of Motor Vehicles to ask them if a ‘Missouri Route 66 plate‘ was available, and they said ‘surprisingly – no’.
I then asked how does it become a reality that the Missouri residents can get one of these (like Illinois, Oklahoma, and New Mexico) and I was told that someone needs to turn in 200+ signatures requesting the plate, and then the person who decides which plates should be made will approve it (or not).
Now, I live in Illinois and am ordering my Route 66 plates for my car – but I feel that everyone who lives, loves, or wants to support Route 66 – should have an opportunity to purchase a plate if they happen to live in one of the 8 states.
Contact the Missouri Route 66 Association via Email and let them know that you want to help try to get these plates.
I spoke with Arizona as well, they needed $35,000 to get a plate going – I told them the ‘check was in the mail’.
I will see what the other states have to say – keep you uposted.

The Illinois Route 66 Association is issuing a limited time ‘Special Illinois Route 66’ license plate.

This plate has been approved by the Illinois Department or Motor Vehicles, and I have been told by some of the folks that have purchased these, a lot of other drivers ask them ‘where did you get the plate!’
These are very limited and it’s ‘first come, first serve’ basis and they benefit the Illinois Route 66 Association’s preservation projects.

A very worthwhile cause – I have my own on its way!!
