    The Boothbay Railway Village Museum hosted the Maine Obsolete Auto League for the annual Antique Auto Day on Saturday, July 23. Approximately 40 vehicles participated and attendees enjoyed looking over the vehicles while they were parked in the Village’s infield.

    Photographer Bob Crink, a former worker for Chevrolet Engineering, contributed these photos. He was impressed with the 1954 Studebaker Starlight Coupe.

    “This almost 70-year-old design by Robert E. Bourke, working for Raymond Lowey Associates, looks modern by today's standards. This car could be in the modern "pony car," Camaro, Mustang, field. Add black wall tires and aluminum wheels it would fit right in.” Crink also said Rockland Ford brought the new all electric Ford pickup to the show.
