OWLS HEAD — Summer is here and Owls Head Transportation Museum is celebrating with the All-American Meet. Flex your automotive muscle and pull-up to this showcase of classic, American-made vehicles.
“Check out the bold styles and big engines at this salute to the manufacturers that made their name in the good ol’ US of A,” said OHTM, in a news release.
Visit OHTM on Saturday, July 2, and Sunday, July 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., for a roster of activities ranging from a classic and specialty car show to historic aircraft demonstrations and the opportunity to purchase a private 20-minute flight in a historic biplane.
On both Saturday and Sunday, the museum grounds will be alive with live demonstrations, exhibitor car shows, interactive displays and more. Attendees can enjoy vintage car rides, food and beverages from the museum’s Hungry Pilot Café, or get some shade indoors as they explore OHTM’s collection of classic automobiles and vintage aircraft.
Before the Prius and the Tesla, there was the Woods Electric.
“Don’t miss your chance to take a ride in OHTM’s 1912 Woods when it’s demonstrated at this event; the interior of the Woods mimics horse-drawn carriages, with passengers facing backwards!” said OHTM. (See attached images.)
Woods Motor Vehicle Company was an American manufacturer of electric automobiles in Chicago between 1899 and 1916. In 1915 they produced the Dual Power with both electric and internal combustion engines. The company was started by Clinton Edgar Woods who literally wrote the first book on electric vehicles.
Other vehicles to be demonstrated include the 1906 Autocar, the 1908 Sears Motorbuggy, the 1929 Peerless Roadster and the 427 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster of 1967. A lineup of historic biplanes will also be demonstrated and flying (weather permitting). Visitors will have the chance to walk along the flightline to get a closer look at their favorite planes.
Purchase a 20-minute scenic biplane ride for an open-air, sky-high experience unlike any other (weather permitting).
Parking is Free. Onsite parking is available to all museum guests.
“Are you part of a local, regional, or national car club?” said the release. “We want to help you host your next gathering, tour stop, or annual meeting during this event or even as part of the show.”
