I took these at Dick's Classic Garage early this year. They are shots of the "Tucker" automobile. It's a pretty cool car, one that was ahead of its time, but could not survive with the likes of GM, Ford and Chrysler back in the late '40s. There's even a movie about it starring Jeff Bridges called "Tucker". It's a pretty good movie.
The following is from the Official Tucker Club of America's website:
"Preston Tucker was a car-crazy kid who hung around auto speedways and grew up to create an automobile--the Tucker--that was years ahead of its time. He was a man of pioneering spirit, ingenuity and daring, who revolutionized Detroit in the 1940s with his stunning "Car of Tomorrow." It was streamlined, futuristic and fast--the car every American dreamed of owning, at a price most people could afford. A man of endless enthusiasm, Tucker publicized his model all over the country to wild acclaim. He sold stock, set up a factory . . . and then the auto industry launched a devastating anti-Tucker campaign."
