Long Description:
Tucumcari, New Mexico: Tee Pee Curios on Route 66.
One the most enjoyable things about driving along the Mother road is driving among unique American icons. As I drive the Byways of the USA the national chain stores & brands dominate the High streets, Not so on route 66.

Note: The Neon text reads TEPEE the Store text reads TEE PEE.
This store gets my vote for the best Neon on Route 66.

From Route 66 news:
"The historic Tee Pee Curios souvenir shop, made famous by its tepee-shaped entrance and elaborate neon sign, reportedly will gain its first new owners in decades.
Gar and Heidi Engman of Fort Dodge, Iowa, reportedly are signing the papers this morning to take over the Tucumcari, N.M., business on Route 66.
According to their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, Gar is president of Hawkeye Painting Co. in Fort Dodge. Heidi was an administrative assistant and social media director at the City of Fort Dodge until July." Text Source: (visit link)
