BATH – Not to be outdone by L.L. Bean’s Bootmobile, the Maine Maritime Museum is getting its own eye-catching ride.
The Lobster Mobile is right now working its way up the East Coast and will be arriving at the museum in Bath today.
The car is a bright red Volkswagon Beetle with a very large red lobster on top. It has been the official vehicle for the Boston Lobster Feast Restaurant in Orlando Florida. But going against the normal snowbird tide, the Lobster Mobile is retiring to Maine where it will be on display at the museum.
Those in southern Maine may catch a glimpse of it as it travels through Freeport and Brunswick this morning.
Its expected to arrive at the museum at about 11 o’clock where there will be a public party to welcome it.
