This is a small family owned car museum, but all of the restorations are masterful & the descriptive signage is well-done. The Joiner family obviously has a passion for old (most vehicles are pre-Depression era) Fords, but there are a few Packards, a DeVaux, several...More

Wow, what a collection of vintage cars, trucks and other artifacts with a family history. All are lovingly restored and maintained. Different than any other car collection I have visited. They even had a Cushman Eagle scooter, one of my favorites.

Many beautifully restored cars and trucks all with a history story board on each vehicle. Other bits of antique items are displayed as well but not so many items as to make for a cluttered space. The museum is open, light and very clean.....not a...More

This auto museum is a real gem. It is hidden away, a bit east of highway 528 at the far north end of Rio Rancho and not to be missed. The cars are beautifully displayed with the history of many documented with signs. Everything is...More

This is a hidden treasure for car buffs. The cars are well detailed and there is descriptive information with most of them. Great gift shop also.

Although a relatively small car museum, everything is in pristine condition and very clean. I liked that we could walk around it at our own speed.

The museum has examples of cars from 1912 - 1930s. There is an Edsel, early T bird & several later special interest cars. Many have participated in the Great American Race. There is a good representation of model A & model T cars

This is a nice, smaller car museum that has a wide variety of vehicles. Quite a few from the early days of car manufacturing. Easy to walk through and I enjoyed viewing details and hardware on the older vehicles. There is also a small collection...More
