This is a small museum of classic cars and hotrods. A lot of Route 66 memorabilia adorns the place and they sell T shirts at a reasonable price. Just a fun and reasonably priced place to visit.

Located inside Russell truck stop was a real gem of a find. Cute museum of cars and many collectables. Did not even know it was inside until I went to purchase something from the store. Free to visitors, donations encouraged but not mandatory.

This is a nice collection of restored and rebuilt automobiles of the types that you would find on Route 66 at its heyday. There are several real classics here as well as a few we haven't seen anywhere else.

While driving from Oklahoma City to Albuquerque this venue provided a great stop over. Fun cars, several of which you don't usually see and various memorabilia. Route 66 was interesting with numerous period specific motels.

Nice friendly people. Great cars! I was a little disappointed with the no discount for military. Drop by if you like cars.

Stopped by on the way through town and really enjoyed it. It is privately owned and run. They had some beautiful cars and a few other vintage things. Really nostalgic. Good for an hours stop.

Our family decided to stop here during our visit to the Santa Rosa NM area. There are a lot of classic automobiles with interesting information on the Route 66 era. PROS: Some very cool cars to see. From a Roadster, to classic COE (Cab over engine) truck. Our children are 12 and 15 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. My... More
