Jerry McClanahan's fascination with Route 66 dates back to family summer vacations during the Sixties. The interstate highway system had all but taken over by 1981, when Jerry began photographing and researching what was left of the old highway.


A Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate from the University of North Texas, Jerry began painting and writing about Route 66 full time in the early Nineties, and his award winning work has been exhibited in shows across the country, both on and off the route, and is found in private and corporate collections in this country and abroad.


Jerry has written extensively for the Route 66 Federation News, American Road (where he is a Department Editor) and Route 66 Magazine. His best selling EZ 66 Guide helps travelers from all over the world discover the excitement of Route 66, while his Route 66 artwork and photos have appeared in many books and in periodicals as diverse as Historic Traveler, Popular Mechanics, and Playboy of Brazil.


Besides painting Route 66 scenes of his own choosing, Jerry also does specially commissioned artwork featuring collector's cars in Route 66 settings. He has established McJerry’s Route 66 Gallery in Chandler, Oklahoma, where he enjoys meeting with tourists from all over the world.
