  • Loved this place- and the owner, Johnny M. He’s collected, refurbished and artfully arranged every possible gas station artifact you can imagine. We called ahead to ask if he’d open up the place...

  • It might not look like a place to stop, but it DEFINITELY IS if you are old enough to remember hand-cranked gas pumps. The owner/operator, while he looks a little "rustic", is actually a retired Los....  more

  • What a cool place to stop on the low road. No charge to look around at the fully restored items, or go outback and see his 1/2 acre of stuff yet to be restored. Owner was very friendly and made my family feel welcome. I even purchased a New Mexico License Plate ad a souvenir.
  • Such a fun experience. We loved it here. Watch for our YouTube video about it @CupcakeChronicles. A definite stop along Route 66. I missed getting pictures indoors but it is fantastic. So many cool signs, gas pumps and memorabilia.
  • This. Is an awesome spot along the rio grande not far from. Taos NM. Well worth the stop
  • A really great stop... A lot of old artifacts as well as some restored items for sale. This collection has taken the owner over 30 years to put together. There is parking but lot is small.
  • A must see for retro gas station enthusiasts. The owner John is a great guy. Lots of cool stories. He doesn't take any money to enter, photograph or video. He should though, its totally worth it. If you do want to make a donation he has a box for the local animal shelter, which we were happy to contribute to. So if you do go, please so pop something in the box.
