This is a real treat, as it's full of memorabilia and restored automotive items. There is also a great shop attached selling everything from route 66 gifts to car registration plates. We also had the honour of meeting Pete, who had lots of interesting stories to tell, including the history of the car on the forecourt ... really fascinating. Great... More

Enjoyed seeing the old memorabilia, very small collection, but the place is kept up nicely. Liked the old signs and gas pumps.

We found Pete's by chance as we walked down Route 66...its not that sign posted and we happened upon it. The museum is small but we enjoyed seeing the motoring tools and can etc on display. He has reproduction signs on sale there, but by the time you get there you have been in the stores further up the street... More

Take 10 minutes out of your stay to visit this little garage for a few photos and a look around. Free, but feel free to leave a donation. Need to support people who keep these attractions open.

This is not the biggest or even the best place to experience classic Route 66; but, it will definitely take you back to a bygone era with automobile memorabilia. The place features a two bay gas station, classic cars, collections of oil cans, cool gas pumps, old photos, license plates, signs, and a variety of souvenirs to purchase. Best part...... More

We had read the other reviews and thought this would be a fun little visit. Perhaps the charm is in the owners (who were not present during our visit). The place consists of a single bay garage with relics of auto care from bygone days. Yes, it was interesting to see a collection of old oil cans and their associated... More

Impressive collection of old car memorabilia. Bought an old number plate and old garage sign, which was hard to find, for a friend. In the main street, so you cannot miss this attraction.
