this is more about gab joiner and his cars and the cars in drove in the great american auto race. it is very nicely laid out with all the cars he raced with information about each car and how it purchased the car. Just about everybody in his family drove at one time in this race with many winning cars.seniors... More

A bit off the beaten path, this auto museum was awesome! We decided to try it after previous plans fell through and what a pleasant surprise! Plenty to see and drool over, there is a large selection of cars and information to keep you busy for a couple of hours.

Hubby is an old-car buff, so on a 'down' day at our home business, we went to J&R---it was very interesting and I even enjoyed the trip. It's not a place that I would want to go very often, who knows how often the 'attractions' change? But I liked it and it was a good and well-kept place.

We just loved the Vintage Auto Collection. Very easy to go thru and the information was priceless. Spent about 2 hours (but it seemed like 15 minutes) and loved every minute of the J & R Vintage Auto Museum. The collection is outstanding. Thank you ever so much for educational visit............we will bring friends and family next visit. Would like... More

Well worth the time. A fantastic collection of a wide range of vintage cars and trucks. The work trucks were intriguing. Interesting cars which race in the Great Race and some came in first the descriptions of the cars were well done. Very educational stop.

Went to see this collection with my husband. Considered staying in the car when he went in. So glad I didn't! What a fabulous collection. Every car had a paragraph to let you know a little more. Many were in one of The Great Races. These people really knew how to have fun and use these beauties. Again, I am... More

Okay, this probably won't knock your socks off but has several well presented vintage cars. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. An overlooked gem for those into these cars. Reasonably priced.

This is a well kept secret in Rio Rancho. Although on the main highway (528), it's tucked deep off the road and not visible from the street, so look closely for the signs. There are several, very nice vintage cars and if you take their guided tour (very reasonable) you will find that this particular car museum is different as... More

Not only did I get a blast out of seeing all these historic vehicles, but I had more fun the second time bringing my parents who are old enough to remember some of then when they were a little newer!
