Kenebunkport Maine - 2002 - Wells Auto Museum

Wells Auto Museum, Wells Maine
We spent a couple of hours one afternoon at the Wells Auto Museum. I'm an old car nut, so it was mostly my idea, but Andie & the kids enjoyed it as well. It's a very nice museum with an impressive collection of fine old automobiles as well as other paranphenalia. In fact, I'd say the biggest problem the museum has is that it desperatley needs more room.

Getting ready to open up

The Museum's first car - 1907 Stanley Steamer
Below are some general pictures of the museum. The kids got a kick out of the room with the old mechanical rides. Also, there were old nichelodian machines dispersed throughout the museum.
Well, if you come to a place like this, the real thing you come for are the cars. I tried to label as many as I could recall. It's certainly possible that I got a few wrong, but i think those that are labeled are labeled correctly.

As you enter, this 1935 Lagonda is the first car you see - and one of the Museum's best
