The best section is in Tucumcari but the abq part is pretty solid. It's been tatted up but you can still see what once was.

The signs really take you there. Many places don't look like it has changed in 50 years. I plan to go back on my Indian motorcycle and ride 66 & 14

I've section traveled a lot of 66 and this area has some great sites. Lots of neon signs, the music road, and plenty of good food.
