Definitely worth the time to stop and look at the awesome classic cars. It has a good range of cars to look at and dream about owning. It costs $5 entry per person. Also has a good selection of Route 66 souvenirs and cold drinks.

I'm pretty sure it was $5 per person.

It says M-F 9:00-5:00, but the locals have said it depends on the owner. Since there are not many visitors, those hours only loosely apply. Best suggestion is to drive by as you go through and see.
