If you got off I40 to drive a little 66, the this is just the place you're looking for

Friendly owners. Just the front part is fun for a visit, but the back collection of cars is worth the $5. NICE RESTORATION WORK!

This is a small museum with maybe 30 cars to see and other memorabilia. Price was only $5.00 each so was worth the money and time.

More like a classic car lot than an auto museum since there is nothing really unique in here. Cars look like they have all been washed and cleaned but nothing really restored or special.

A fantastic little stop on the route full of fantastic cars. If you have the funds and the inclination many are priced to sell and very tempting. The retro feel of the cars takes you back to the glory days of the route.

Happened across this museum on a travel from SanFran to NYC. Bozo was a great host and given we were he only ones there he walked us through a few of the cars with some more in depth history. Coffee and seating available. Well worth the visit.

So much to see! If you like restored muscle cars Harley's Indians and just cool old cars and trucks, you do not want to miss this! There's a charge for going in but it's nominal compared to everything you get to see. You can be right up close to most of the vehicles. If you remember cars that you could... More

We had a great time looking at all the cars and all the memorabilia. There is so much to look at. If you like nostalgia at all this is the place for you. The amount of things to look at is overwhelming but a lot of fun. Certainly brings back memories of times gone by.

We were not able to go in, as they were closed; however, they has some very interesting vehicles out side that made us want to visit. We will be stopping there on our return trip through Santa Rosa.

This place is a good place to visit. There is an area that you have to pay to get to - a very reasonable amount, but there is an ample area in the front to browse. We spent quite a bit of time looking around and found great souvenirs for great prices.
