Cars and coffee June 25

seal cap – Seal Cove Automobile Museum is hosting a special event for cars and coffee on electric cars on Saturday, June 25 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Many were surprised to discover that the electric vehicle is not a recent development; Electric cars have been around since the 19th century. Display your Mach-E, Tesla, or other brand of electric cars alongside some of their predecessors from the museum’s collection.

Cars and Coffee is an opportunity for drivers to display their own cars, and for car enthusiasts and members of the community to peek under the hood, learn about the hobby and enjoy a day at the museum with a cup of coffee.

All are welcome, with or without a vintage or vintage car, and admission to the museum is free until 1pm on show days.
