Buck's Harbor Market enjoyed playing host to 75 antique automobiles and over 180 car enthusiasts from all over the United States and as far away as New Zealand on Monday, June 26. The group who visited here in South Brooksville are members of the Horseless Carriage Club of America (HCAA). They were taking part in the Gas and Brass tour June 26-30 starting their tour in Brooksville, then lunching in Castine at Maine Maritime Academy and touring thru Blue Hill and Surry. This group was mostly made up of folks from the Northeast region and are known as the Autoneers. The cars that visited our lovely village were built in 1915 and before; the oldest in the tour being a 1904 Cadillac owned by the Altieri's.
Janice Altieri is pictured below, seated in the horseless carriage and wearing typical open car riding attire. The top middle photo is of mother-son duo, Kathleen and Kevin Conrad, who participate in a number of car tours all over the United States.
The Autoneers are a friendly and enthusiastic group who brought a lot of fun and excitement to our market, partaking of coffee, fresh baked pastries and stocking up on provisions for the road. We look forward to hosting them in the coming years! [all photos ©2017 Jo Andrews]
