It’s almost like walking into Wal-Mart.  Even if you remembered to pocket your shopping list from the kitchen counter, there’s something about the sheer volume of the space that renders you uncertain of what you had planned to accomplish.

So, I started small- car mascots.  In display cases lining one of the Nethercutt Museum’s warehouse walls, there are 1100 car mascots to peruse.  After I revved my engine, so to say, I moved on to the 130+ cars on display.  Each had their own informational plaque.  Each had their own unique history. But, they all managed to find their way Sylmar.

I later found out this was the Nethercutt Museum, not the Nethercutt Collection.  The Collection is in an entirely different warehouse down the block.  For more information about this unique display of antique automobiles, check here:  http://nethercuttcollection.org/Home.aspx
