Neat Tucker

How cool that someone who owns one of those ACTUALLY drives it - regularly it would seem. I hope the owner is aware of what is spilled all over the back bumper. It appears to be coming from the engine compartment.

I am "related" to the Tucker, in a manner of speaking. My uncle was Read Viemeister. Here are a few clips from articles about him and his son:

(From his obituary) "Mr. Viemeister designed for print media, packaging, products and architecture. In 1947, he was among a group of designers assembled by Preston Tucker in Detroit to design the innovative but financially ill-fated Tucker automobile."

(From the IDSA.org website) "As a child growing up in Ohio, Viemeister saw how much fun his father, Read Viemeister, FIDSA had working as an industrial designer (Tucker was named after the car his father was working on when he was born)."

I have a degree in Packaging Engineering.....wonder where THAT came from!! :smile:

Heck, the closest I've been to a Tucker is a photograph... I'd love to see one in the flesh some day...
