The 2017 Oldsmobile National Meet will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, July 18 through July 23. It will be hosted jointly by the Oldsmobile Club of America and the Oldsmobile Club of New Mexico.
Albuquerque is at the intersection of Interstate 40 and Interstate 25. Prior to the interstate system, the major crossroads were US Highway 66 (Route 66) and US Highway 85. Central Avenue in Albuquerque is the original Route 66 and many of the original buildings and signs are still there.
Albuquerque has a rich history and many local attractions. For those who arrive early or leave late, there are many unique things to see and do.
