“a pair of cartoon cars”
Located at a gas station named Papa Joe's Stop & Go there sits two cars that are most well known for their roles in TV and Film. One is the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo and the other is a Camry painted to match the character of Lightning McQueen from the movie Car's.
The paint is peeling and the cars are not well maintained you can't make out most of the scooby doo characters anymore and gas here was .90 cents more than anywhere else it had been my whole trip. Might have been worth it when they were first painted but my opinion would be to skip it now..
Don't stop here. The mystery machine is gone and the paint is almost entirely peeled off of lightning McQueen 🙁 super dissapointing.
Wow that's just so sad and disappointing. Sure, go ahead and pull in to see for yourself, but don't park, don't get out of your car, and definitely don't fuel up more than you need to get to the next town.
Sad, don’t stop
Unless you just need to stop at this run down store don't waste your time. The cars are run down, paint is peeling and faded , flat tires and look like crap.
while i was very excited to visit this stop, i was in shock when they were charging two full dollars more than i had paid in Moab and subsequently 2.15 more than i paid when i went to green river. They recently added Miss Sally, so the photos were taken but i just could not stomach spending almost six dollars per gallon.
This is actually in Crescent Junction, Utah. about 5 miles down the free way from Thompson.
Don't expect much and definitely don't buy the pricey gas here if you can make it to Green River or Moab. But if you like breathtakingly kitchy Americana, want jerky our edible crickets, it's worth a brief visit and a few photos.
Super disappointing. Not worth stopping
If you need a restroom, kitschy gifts, and really cook pictures, then stop
