On June 28, 1953 employees at the Chevrolet plant in Flint, Michigan assembled the first Corvette. Just two days later the first production Corvette rolled off the assembly line and into automotive history. While the company produced just 300 Corvettes the first year the sporty two-seater has become an enduring American icon and is still a favorite with many auto enthusiasts and collectors today.View Post >>
Our next event, the Rod, Custom and Muscle Car Cruise-in on July 11 and 12, is one of our perennial favorites and this year we're excited to welcome several special guests including the Maine Motorsports Mobile Museum.
The Maine Motorsports Mobile Museum is an integral part of the Maine Vintage Race Car Association’s efforts to preserve the history of Maine motorsports. The Mobile Museum showcases that history through its numerous displays inside and outside of the 40-foot long traveling museum, documenting the sports history from its earliest beginnings on the sands of Old Orchard Beach in 1911 to its present popularity at race tracks and drag strips in the state. The Mobile Museum travels more than 1000 miles each year to deliver racing history to locations across the state and we are pleased to welcome them to OHTM!
Stay tuned for more information about additional happenings, activities and special guests (as well as guest vehicles) that will be joining us for the Rod, Custom and Muscle Car Cruise-in just two weeks from today!
