- There's a reason for this chaos, and two of the reasons in this picture involve Cape Cod.

Help Pick My Next Post

I'm gonna make a poll to see which big post I should do next!

There is a reason why I've been absent since my last few posts. It's been because I can't decide which post to do next and I'm very divided in what to make in the coming month(s) (depending on what to include on the posts).

Option 1: Washin' My Charger!! (Sept 22)

Washing it with Dad and glad to see that shine after such a long time.

The charger had a wet bath earlier in the year but it included no soap and wax, but this time an Armor All kit was gonna solve all of that inside and out. The reflections and the sleekness will put a smile on your face through both pictures and videos.

Option 2: The Car Collection of Heritage Museum and Gardens (6/17/2019)

The car collection was displayed in a shaker style house that stored the original curators' cars and some later additions.

From the top floor so you can get an idea what it looks like from the inside.

A couple who came from wealthy families had originally set this area as their decorative gardens, later it developed into a spectacle in the town and then, around the 50's, became a museum and botanical garden (originally called Heritage Plantation) to display their collections, including their cars at a later point. Today this museum continues, while bringing in not only new visitors, but also temporary exhibits every year (one of which I shared on Carthrottle when the "Driving Your Dreams" tour passed by there in 2013!

Option 3: Car spots of Cape Cod in June (6/15/2019 - 6/22/2019)

I saw this Cobra after the Father's Day Main Street Car Show, I pulled up next to it to take the picture fast!

There are a surprising amount of car spots from this specific week I never managed to post for some reason. Well! You have that opportunity to choose to see all the beauties I found that week alone! Well, I mean look at where this is, you're gonna see some good or obscure cars no matter what, especially in the summertime.

Option 4: Toad Hall in June (6/18/2019)

A panoramic of both the barn (in the back) and the entire Simmons Inn that is home to Hyannis' own Toad Hall.

I also did a post on Carthrottle on this back in 2013 as well, however the collection was much more fuller at the time and, one thing I never learned until later, the reason for it was that the owner himself was selling off the cars and still is. Bill (the owner) had shared both businesses with his friend from his old SCCA dominating days and his wife. He had shared his passion for cars with her but close to midway into the current decade (I know we're near the end but this is still in 2019 guys) she had passed away. A major reason for selling his cars comes from losing her, that and the costs to maintain the cars and keep them running. He and his old friend still maintain the cars but it is what's left that gets the maintenance. Me and Dad enjoyed talking to the both of them and hopefully you guys will enjoy my story if you choose to hear about this in the polls.

What's coming anyway? Also time to Vote!

It's time to pick what you want me to show next as a future big project. But in the meantime there is one big post (besides a forzatography post) I'm currently working on that I wanted to make soon after the Father's Day Car Show post of another car show I saw in Littleton, MA. It's backstory is a fairly touching one as it also served as a fundraiser for the Scott Holt Fund, in which donations go to those that have suffered severe injury like the starter of the charity, whom suffered a severe spinal injury when working overtime on his shift in the Littleton Fire House.

There was a large variety considering most of the cars were American. But the colors were just awesome, no bland black to white (as a majority), just good variety and personality
