1913 Peugeot

Pebble Beach Ribbon


We discovered a great little automobile museum in a little town called Tremont, ME that houses a world class collection of antique cars from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was started by Richard Paine as a personal collection in the 1950’s. He managed to stuff about 175 cars into a large clear span garage. After he died in 2007, the Trust that he set up auctioned off all but those cars that were considered part of the core collection (numbering about 50). The auction produced enough money to endow the trust for a long time. One of the cars, a 1913 Peugeot, entered into the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last year and won 2nd place. The only reason it didn’t win 1st place was that it stalled as it drove to the winner’s stand and it couldn’t be restarted. You can get more information from the web site www.sealcoveautomuseum.org.
