Peugeot back at Seal Cove Auto Museum after ‘GRAND TOUR’

Peugeot back at Seal Cove Auto Museum after ‘GRAND TOUR’

Mount Desert Island, Maine-- The Seal Cove Auto Museum’s prize exhibit, the 1913 Peugeot Type 150 wooden bodied ‘skiff’ is back at the Museum, following a winter in Europe doing the ‘Grand Tour’.

The Peugeot, owned by the Richard Cushing Paine Jr., Automobile Collection Charitable Trust and on permanent display at the Seal Cove, made the long voyage to Paris last February to be shown in the Grand Palais at Retromobile, France’s premiere car show.  Following Paris, the car went to the The Louwman Collection - Dutch National Motor Museum for display and then on to London for showing at Bonhams and the sea voyage back home.

Inspecting the car after her return, 30 Euro Cents in coins were found on the floor mat.  Perhaps she was seen as a wishing well by her many European admirers?  Although she can’t tell us about her adventures abroad, she can awe and inspire our visitors to the Museum.

Alpha One-Adaptive Driving Education Fundraiser

Alpha One-Adaptive Driving Education Fundraiser

Alpha One is launching our first fundraising initiative to enhance our Adaptive Driving Education program and we are looking for your help.

This program is one of our oldest, and has been offering driver evaluation, assistive driving technology consultation and driver education and training since the early ‘80s. The ADE Program has helped hundreds of Maine consumers to become licensed drivers and enjoy the freedom of mobility

Our goal is to lower the overall cost of delivering this valuable service to Maine people who want to get back on the road again, by soliciting support from individuals and businesses who share our desire to help others remain independent.

Donations from foundations and individuals will provide for the purchase and adaptation of a new van and the operation of the program over the next five years.
