We're not really into cars, but actually loved this little museum. A lot of cool cars that gave us that good "route 66 feeling". Attached to the Afton Station Packard Museum, which is also a nice place.

Worth the visit, seniors are $9 to visit the museum where you can see about 50 cars many of which were hand created by Darryl. If you are a car enthusiast you will love the cars on display.
