Take a picture by the building that inspired scenes from the movie Cars, right off Route 66.

The tower station was intended to be a gas station and was built in 1936. It eventually fell to ruin until it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. U-Drop Inn was given funding to restore and reimagine the original building and became a popular pit stop after the successful Cars movie was released. Neon signs give off a lively atmosphere at night. U Drop Inn was represented as Ramone’s House of Body Art, an auto body paint shop in the fictional town of Radiator Springs.

The art deco detailing and towers make it stand out as a unique building along Route 66. It is no longer a service station but is open to the public as a visitor center and also houses the chamber of commerce for Shamrock, Texas.
