George, Gay Parita owner, directed me to this early 66 route to the Spencer Service Station.
Looks like a beautifully restored, but unmarked, classic filling station.

Webb City MO
A 3-for-1 Selfie!
#7 State for the trip, and the shortest bit of Route 66 of any - only 13 miles.
Kansas is also the 1st of 12 that I needed to complete the contiguous 48 States in this Corvette!
The "Rainbow Arch Bridge"
Baxter Springs KS
Already another State! #8 for the trip.
