A great crowd of Tucker fans required additional seats to be be added!

It was a thoroughly fabulous day.  The talk was informative and enjoyable.  Despite all I’ve read in several books, I learned even more today.  We’ll have to do it again…..soon. wink

1044 looks fabulous in the video. I haven’t seen her in person yet but likely a superb restore. In the video, I can’t find any faults anywhere, amazing all the lines meet perfectly. Excellent work by all and the dedication to get this accomplished. Congrats Howard and to all involved.

Howard, I now know more about this Mark Lieberman and his Nostalgic Motoring Ltd. Impressive! I understand now why he’s the one who try to explain my question about why the Air Cooled Franklin engine was converted to a water cooled engine.

Howard Kroplick.
Mark, agree!

Also Mark Lieberman clarified for me, outside during the demo, showed him a photo of this blue Tucker convertible ‘secret? prototype’ that some of you may have known about, “FAKE-BOUGHT STUFF FROM US”!! looked up another day, information about this, yes it’s a fabrication of real recondition parts and mostly remanufactured parts done at later date? A FAKE!!
