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.

What a collection of restored cars from our, the baby boomers, past! Not only are the cars worth several photos, but most are also for sale! I'm sure they would deduct the $5 entrance fee if you were to purchase one or two! Also a great collection of vintage toys and auto memorabilia are there for your viewing. A must... More

Love looking at old cars. This is not a huge place, but definitely a good worth an hour of your time. The gift shop alone had some cool items.

Enjoyed walking thru and viewing the old cars. You can walk thru as quick or as slow as you'd like. Some of the vintage cars are for sale, so feel free to drive off into the sunset :) (after purchasing of course!)
