The owner is really nice. He let us wander around, sit in any car, pretty cool. These are not top show quality, museum cars. That is some of the charm. Tons and tons of rare and significant British cars of all ages, TVR, Jaguars, Lotuses, MG, Austin, a Bentley. Worth a visit if you like interesting cars. Oh and the... More

Hi John, glad you enjoyed the cars and I know the cats enjoyed you :-) Yep, not a museum, just a great collection of sports cars that have been driven and enjoyed. Keep telling your friends to check us out when on Cape Cod. Thanks again and glad you had fun, Bill More

Anyone with an interest in British Legend Sports Cars from the 1950's thru early 70's plus Datsun Race cars NEEDS to visit this remarkable garage museum. ALL the 41 cars are RED and in very drivable condition and exercised regularly (Chris the head mechanic is a motorhead thru and thru). I was in Cape Cod for a week and heard... More

Thanks and glad you had a great time. These are cars I picked up over the years, drove and then saved them. Eventually gonna have to sell them as that's my 'retirement.' But for the next bunch of years it is just fun to see and even sit in the old guys. Again thanks for coming and thanks for having... More

I am glad you enjoyed the ol' Brit cars, and I know they enjoyed seeing you. I also noticed that unlike most English folk you didn't drool a lot or shed homesick tears on their bonnets. Do come again when you are back here in the Colonies. Cheers! Toad and Bill More

Mr. Putnam led our group through a beautiful garden to get to the garage space. We were greeted by a few friendly cats! Not only is Toad Hall a beautiful collection of cars, it seems that Mr. Putnam is also a collector of cats! They were everywhere throughout the property, laying is shady spots and loving the steady stream of... More

Toad, I and the cats have liked the annual visit by some of your students. We really like bringing a little fun and enjoyment into their lives. And remember I said you could bring another bunch of kids to just check out the cats. They really like the attention. I told you they were taken at 3-5 weeks old and... More

How cool is it to collect red sports cars. How much cooler is to share them with the rest of us as a museum of sorts. A Triumph TR3 was my first car, so seeing one brought back lots of memories. However, our entire group of 8 enjoyed the attraction. It was a quick and enjoyable addition to our day... More

Cute idea. This guy has collected all these cars and has them in a very large garage of sorts. He has a small toad in all of them. Has an office that has many many collector model cars too. The only issue is that he has many cats that roam freely. So, if you are allergic to cats, or don't... More

This is a collection of 45 cars. Mostly British, a few Japanese. Mostly sports cars, a few sedans. And all of them are red. The facility is an older barn, no heat or AC. The owner is a former sports car racer and drove many of these cars himself. There are placards with interesting background information on most of the... More

Nice revue. The 'barn' isn't old. I just kept building sheds as I added cars that I drove. Had I known it was going to grow sooooo big, probably would have built something bigger. And not a museum. These were little classics bought as drivers and are all still capable of going back on the road. Over the next 10... More

You could never imagine the surprises that await you behind those garage doors. Row after row of the most beautiful red sports cars dating from the 1950's to the 1980's. There is a story behind each one that Bill will gladly fill in you on so allow enough time to enjoy them. It's a must see if you are anywhere... More

It was a nice visit. The owner of this collection, Bill Putman, greeted us, very welcoming and friendly just like his cats. My boyfriend enjoyed the visit to get up close and personal with these classic cars. I believed the oldest was a 1954 Triumph if I remember it correctly. Thank you for sharing your personal collection with us!
