"Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route." - Amelie Poulain ('Amelie') ( [whispering in theater] I like to look for things no one else catches. I hate the way drivers never watch the road in old American movies.)
Life would never be the same at Midpoint Café in small-town Adrian, Texas – where the population was 300 and shrinking. Houser's 1928 café along historic Route 66 is widely cited as the inspiration behind the roadside stop known as Flo's V8 Café, a neon palace and a centerpiece of the imaginary Radiator Springs in Disney Pixar's "Cars" movie.

Funny part is -- this is just the way stuff did look on Route 66 when I was a kid -- we did the trip from Ohio or Kentucky to AZ-California every year (roundtrip) for 10 years straight. There was no interstate then. No traffic. Few gas stations. Just lots of desert and nothingness in between roadside attractions or signs like these.
