I'm driving my sisters car out there for her. But is there anything cool on the route? It is I-80 all the way out there. I'm going to hit up some Lincoln Highway stuff I hope, the random train stuff. But it looks like a lot of nothing. Any cool cars hanging around? Iowa? Nebraska? Wyoming?

Salt Lake, train stuff? Then you have to go out just north of Brigham and see:

Lot's more there to see now then there was at my first visit in 1962.

Probably, he runs the Race Car Registry and has had several S&M cars. He used to come here a while back.

if you adventure a little off I80 you can see the very scenic sand hills in nebraska---and the browns park/hole in the wall from sundance and butch cassidy near green river wyoming----and there is the flaming gorge reservoir too......

Just north of Omaha, NE is Blair, NE, home of Woodhouse (truck mountain is worth the drive).

Woodhouse is a large Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership with a Ford store as well across the street. Both sides of the highway feature a large stock of trucks "built in" to the hills. Terraces hold hundreds of new trucks.

Omaha features several Woodhouse locations including Maserati and Alfa Romeo, if you want to check out a new 4C or Maserati. smile

I80 Truck Stop in IA is fun as well, has a vintage Power Wagon inside.

Once you get into NE, though...not much to see for a long, long time. frown

Good luck!
