Chestnut Street, The Perfect Setting for Antique Cars in Camden Maine
The Mid Maine Sports Car Club had their annual display on Chestnut Street in Camden Maine. They always seem to be fortunate with the weather. This is about the middle of what I like to call lilac season. This year, due to a cool spring, lilac season and tulip season overlapped! The last couple of weeks have seen fabulous colors and cloud formations in the sky. The long days end like the prolonged goodbye of people who are loathe to part. The light in the sky fades by degrees until it’s gone late in the evening. It is a choice time of year for the select few who come to enjoy it. And one of the events that we enjoy this time of year is the beautiful cars assembled on Chestnut Street. The proud owners, restorers and clusters of appreciators gather around gleaming chrome and the kinds of hood colors only appropriate to what amount to feats of the imagination. A short stroll from the Windward House B&B downtown and you are standing in an auto-museum.
If You Need A Reason to Come in Early June!
Here are some images of these classic cars and antique cars. There were a nice group of Triumphs, a classic Jaguar, and more (I am no expert). Downtown Camden Village is the perfect setting for these recent anacronisms. With the old brick façade commercial buildings a foreground for the rolling Camden Hills, and the crica 1800’s federal and Greek revival style residences gathered around the Chestnut street, you feel as though you are at the joyous rally of a bygone era! These are not simply Antique Sports Cars in Camden Maine, but sports cars!
Camden Maine is a historic town, and it draws events such as the Mid Maine Sports Car Club’s display on Chestnut Street. It was a wonderful day for ice cream at River Ducks or Camden Cone, a stroll by the water, and a nice dinner at Fresh, or Atlantica Seafood Bistro – after snapping some shots of the amazing beauty of this place! This time of year is a nice quiet and amazingly beautiful time to come.
