Auto Magic

TREMONT — On Saturday, June 12, at the Seal Cove Auto Museum, authors Richard and Nancy Fraser will be signing and discussing their book “Maine Built Automobiles & Motorized Vehicles 1834 – 1934, With a History of Maine License Plates.” At 1:30 p.m., the Frasers will give an illustrated lecture.


The book signing and lecture are part of a full day of activities at the museum, which kicks off at 9:30 a.m. with a garage sale featuring early automobile books and ephemera. Throughout the day, license plate collectors will be showing and swapping their treasures, and the museum will exhibit its collection of rare porcelain enamel Maine license plates.

At 10:30am, Roberto Rodriguez will present copies of the Frasers’ book to representatives from the libraries on Mount Desert Island, Ellsworth, Islesford, and Cranberry Isles. Following the book presentations, Mr. Rodriguez will show guests and visitors relics from the very first automobile to run on Mount Desert Island.

The Seal Cove Auto Museum houses the Richard Paine collection of Brass Era automobiles and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Oct. 31. The museum is at 1414 Tremont (Pretty Marsh) Road/Route 102, opposite Seal Cove Pond.
