Sharing a passion with the public. Route 66 Car Museum is a privately owned car collection that is located along the famed and historic Route 66. Guy Mace started collecting in 1990 when he bought his first Jaguar. The collection has since grown to 75 automobiles that "strikes a fancy".

Ranging from early brass era cars to vehicles used in cinema such as the Gotham Roadster, this collection is sure to have a vehicle for every museum goer's taste.

The museum houses seven Jaguars, two Rolls Royces, a 1963 Morgan owned by Desert Storm's General Norman Schwarzkopf, and the famous truck from the movie 'Grapes of Wrath' that starred Henry Fonda.

Several very unique classic cars are on display. Of note is the 1936 Horch, one of about 50 that were sold to the German government in 1937 for use by the military's General Officers. This Horch won second place in the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Prewar Preservation Class. It is 100 percent original, having been stored for over 50 years in South Dakota. Two other classics in the collection, the 1933 Auburn 12, and the 1926 Kissel Brougham, both National First Prize winners of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), represent the pinnacle of 1920's and 1930's classics, along with several other unusual cars on display from that era."

  • Very nice place to visit, if you are a car buff. My adult son enjoyed it very much and the staff is super friendly. They have some real cool things in this Museum.  more »
  • We were there for a private event. Mr. Mace gave a great overview on how he started the museum and his collection. Had a wonderful time.  more »
  • Road trip from LA to Ohio and back. Santa Rosa was an overnight stop. We'd hoped to see the Blue Hole but the weather didn't hold. As we ate at a local diner someone mentioned the 66 Auto Museum. $5 admission, 30+ cars ranging from hot rods to classics to muscle cars. Most are fully restored, some are even for sale. Spent an hour or so, took a ton of photos. Not much to do in Santa Rosa but worth stopping to see this!
  • This place is wonderful. For a small building they have many cars. What a great place to see cars you have never seen before. It is a must see.
