Off we went to attend the Boston Cup Concours on the Boston Common. It was a long day, but worth it! This years theme was racing and performance vehicles. Our 1928 Model A "Doodle-Bug" tow tractor fit right in. Not to be out-done was our 1907 Vanderbilt Renault racer. This car has a signifigant historical story which we explained all day to amazed spectators. A plan to re-restore this car is underway, so watch for details on our web site. Below is a group of photographs taken of various Concours vehicles. A fine time was had by all and the attendance was top-notch. #thebostoncup
With the previous Volunteer project completed, sold and gone, it's time to start the next one. OHTM will again partner with the Region 8 Midcoast School of Technology to bring together students and museum volunteers in restoring an antique auto. Our pile of rusty parts has us leaning toward a 1922 Model T Canopy Express Wagon. OHTM volunteers will do the mechanical rebuild, and Region 8 will do the body work, both metal and wood. Like last time, photo's will be posted as progress is made. Stay tuned!
