Long Description:
Bluesmobile on a Stick alongside the Mother Road, a new Route 66 roadside attraction.
The replica of the "Blues Brothers" movie car, a 1974 Dodge Monaco police prowler, is set at an angle on top of a pole, so you can get your Route 66 Kodak moment.

The plaque on the pole reads:
"It's got a cop motor a 440 cubic-inch plant. It's got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas"
