“the mother load on the Mother Road”

We are the only Route 66 auto museum in New Mexico. We have over 30 cars on display ranging form original to custom. Build by museum owner 'Bozo Cordova'.

Bozo and Anna Cordova have been the proud owners of route 66 auto museum for 14 years. They opened our doors on August 15th 2000. Their museum is a result of success form their auto restoration and towing company which they have proudly owned for over 34 years (Bozo garage and wrecker service). Bozo has quickly established himself and both his businesses here in Santa Rosa New Mexico because of the love and pride he has for his town and the history and culture of route 66. Having built his first car at age 12 and continuing his passion for auto restoration and repair bozo has been building cars with precision and pride for over 55 years. Bozo and his crew have custom built over 150 different cars ranging from the years 1920 to 2005. The restorations he and his crew built with such precision, pride and out of the box thinking have cycled through his museum and have been bought by their proud owners all over the world. Bozo and his crew not only have an passion for building cars but also giving back to the community, in addition to his annual car show in the park which they invite anyone to bring there car creations to the show and win prizes for their vehicles. Bozo has served as councilman for the city of Santa Rosa and County commissioner.

Ok, I pulled up to the building and my wife made me get out to look over first. Does that give you an idea about the parking lot and outside of the building?

We walked in and the owner greeted us. The first room was a gift shop, old engines, motorcycles, etc. Really nothing special.

My wife raised her eyebrows when I said let’s pay to see everything else. I mean it was very inexpensive to do it, so what the hey.

The owner changed his hat and now collected our money. “Any questions, let me know,” he said.

I heard him talking to another guy and he was involved in so many of the restorations, but he knew every detail.

We turned the corner and holy cow! Even my wife snapped a few pics of her favorites.

Many of the vehicles there brought back memories of how much money I wasted in my teenage years.

Bring your platinum card because some are for sale. Hey you only live once. Easy for me to say, when I asked if we could buy a car there for oh, a cool $45,000.

Well no car but good memories were made and remembered.

Plenty of room for what ever you are driving or pulling. Just tell your wife to close eyes till you get in.

This place was cool inside. Lots of classic and weird cars. Even one from the 20’s! The only reason I gave it a 4 star was the staff. We went in and had to interrupt a conversation to go see the museum part. And as we paid they were continuing their conversation. But worth it. My kids loved it here.
