The Tucker Automobile Club of America

The '48 Tucker is one of my favorite cars of all time. As well as the entrepreneur story and movie that goes with it. The Tucker Automobile Club of America web site has just been re-designed.

One of the new announcements is the 31st annual convention, this year in Chicago! If you know the Tucker story, you know that Chicago was the home of the factory, as well as Preston Tucker’s second home. Both of these places will be on the tour.

At least 5 Tucker automobiles -- 10% of all that were made, will be at the show. Who knows, maybe Francis Ford Coppola will show up with his car! Or maybe George Lucas! Both of these famous film makers own Tuckers, and their love of the car and story inspired them to make the movie, “Tucker, The Man And His Dream”.

The new web site is very nice, using a Tucker “radio” for navigation, and with the Tucker logo in the background. The color scheme works well, for a historical web site. If you haven’t seen the movie, you should rent it, it’s very well done. Try out the web site, to learn more about the Tucker.

“Don’t let a Tucker pass you buy!”
