MOUNT DESERT — The period focus of Seal Cove Auto Museum is the Brass Era. Celebrate pre-1918 automobiles at the museum Aug. 27 for the seventh Cars & Coffee gathering of 2022. 

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the museum invites the public to peruse specialty autos of all kinds, vintages and varieties. Author Bob Lawton will be on hand to talk about his new book, “Murder with an Ocean View,” and copies will be available for purchase.  

Admission to the museum and featured exhibits is free during the family-friendly event. Free light refreshments include coffee, locally baked donuts from Honey and Lace Baking Company, fruit and juices. 

Seal Cove Auto Museum Executive Director Ethan Yankura and Curator of Collections Bill Barter will discuss the collection and the history of the automobile. 

“Brass Day is a great way to focus on the earliest autos while inviting the community to bring their specialty cars of all eras. The comparisons we can draw between these very early autos of the Brass Era and the cars of today are fascinating. We look forward to welcoming a great crowd and some exciting guest automobiles,” Yankura said.  

A full schedule of Cars & Coffee events can be found online at 

Located at 1414 Tremont Road in Seal Cove, the museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from May 1 through Oct. 31.
