I know many people whose favorite cars have come from Morris Garage.
|This was true of my father (with his 1952 TD Roadster here in Maine)...|

One of the best places to get an MG fix is The Owls Head Transportation Museum in the coastal Maine town of Owls Head, not too far from Camden.
I like visiting the Transportation Museum off-season, and given that it is only closed three days a year (New Year's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas) it is easy to do.
|The museum enjoys tremendous community support and has an army of well informed, passionate, and wry volunteers.|
|This being Maine, they have a moose.|
This is where one can see, according to Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car (October, 2012): “One of the most comprehensive MG collections in the country, if not in the world.”

|In a world where far too many people appear to be auditioning for their own reality television show, I crave and appreciate such remarkable understatement.|
|We watched volunteers doing restoration work.|
|One wing houses vehicles that are for sale, including this rare 1932 Ford B Woodie Wagon (priced at $100,000).|
We have the pleasure of hearing the founding museum director, Charlie Chiarchiaro, partake in the weekly musical gathering just down the coast, where he always arrives in one of the antique cars. (For an example, see the end of this entry and this entry ) He has just retired after 36 years.
Also see some MGs at the end of the Wolfeboro entry.
