Such a cute little stop off route 66. We saw Tow Tater, the inspiration for Mater in Cars. They also had a Mater replica and Red. They are in the parking lot of an old gas station. Inside there's a little gift shop and restaurant....More

This is a really fun stop on old Route 66! AND Mater from Disney's movie Cars is parked outside! There are also old fashioned gas pumps out front!

This is a great place to visit on the way through. Good photo opportunity and my wife found some different merchandise to buy in the shop. The lady was very friendly and hospitable even giving us a small gift in appreciation of our purchases.

This place is a great photo opportunity with either the kids or the kid at heart. Take a break and learn the history of the movie while getting a little something to eat.

We arrived Wednesday afternoon and they were closed. That was very disappointing, but we took lots of pics with the grandsons around the cars in the lot and looked in the windows of the station. Boys were happy and that's what was important. Cute set-up.
