That would be a killer road trip.
My wife and I thought we would drive route 66 last summer but when I started studying it I found...well, there is no route 66. It was decommissioned when I-40 was put into service and the existing roads were turned into county and state roads. You can get maps of the old route 66 but it's not called route 66 anymore.
Having said that the most direct route is to take I-40 to LA then "the 5" to the bay area.
