On or off topic, thanks for the interesting road trip ideas! I want to try the Polaroid process on some historic road sites myself, and I like the idea of sending friends the originals on your Route 66 trip to maintain interest as you travel.
Keep the Show on the Road!

The pack film cameras are THE way to go with Polaroid, because Fujifilm still makes brand new film for them. These are the cameras where you manually pull the photo out of the camera, wait for developing, and peel the photo off backing paper to reveal the print. In my opinion, the pack film cameras take better pictures than most, if not all, of the integral film cameras (the kind where you press the button, the picture shoots out the front, and develops before your eyes).
Some posts from my blog about my Polaroids:

Integral film: http://blog.jimgrey....id-onestep-600/ and http://blog.jimgrey....olaroid-one600/
A list of all of the cameras I've collected and shot:

The Big Swinger 3000 is, I think, my favorite of the pack film cameras (maybe after the 250). The single element lens pulls off some wonderful shots. I absolutely love it. I just wish they would have made a single element camera that could take color film. I don't usually shoot B&W. I've got six or seven pack film cameras. I can't believe I somehow missed out on this. Some of my shots from the BS3k are here.
I checked out your blog and I'll start following. Your collection is fairly amazing. Mine, here, is smaller (and missing all of the Polaroids that I now have). I think I've gotten a few others since then. They're all 120. I like big negatives, I guess.

But it says quite a bit about their special effects team.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
