Beautiful Boats in Maine

Nautical photographer Alison Langley, famous for pictures of boats, owns this 1973 Buick Electra, one of the largest cars in the great State of Maine.
            And Isla Miller found this c. 1939 Dodge truck at work in the Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine. The same vintage as the Dodge that Alex Emond turned up last month in Saskatchewan.
