A great story on The Old Motor about the original 1908 Stanley K that belongs to our friends at the Seal Cove Auto Museum. This vehicle has a colorful history which is well worth reading. We're really lucky to have such exceptional transportation museums here on the stunning coast of Maine!
Be sure to follow us on instagram @owlsheadtransportationmuseum for more great photos of collection pieces and happenings at the museum!
Pictured is our 1903 Mercedes Simplex enjoying the sunny afternoon on Runway 17. The Simplex and several other pieces from our collection will be photographed today for future covers of our membership publication Strut & Axle.
In addition to the fantastic, brand-new Fisher Xtreme V plow we have loads of other great things available at our upcoming Great Fall Auction and Flea Market. Items include multiple travel opportunities and stays in gorgeous locations from France to Aruba and more! Want a "staycation" instead? We've got certificates for stays at some of Maine's premiere Inns and Bed and Breakfasts, too. Goods (new and old), services, furniture, housewares, pre-owned vehicles, antiques, collectibles and more will comprise the inventory of this two-day shopping extravaganza! Thee best part?
