Hi Howard:
Great show at the Bridge, we loved being there. Our Volga was placed at the other side of the field, by the art show. But Tucker had the greatest spot and it look magnificent.

Wish I had been at the Bridge event. I raced on that track in my Porsche Speedster and later in a Formula V King race car. The polished aluminum car seen in your last photo is a Glockler Porsche which I saw racing at the street circuit in Bridgehampton around 1951 or1952 driven that day by none other than Max Hoffman, the man responsible for importing all those wonderful european cars back at the beginnings of the wave of interest here in oh so many cool sports cars ... early ‘50s.

As the modern lambos left for the day was able to get this shot of a car much more ahead of its time following them out. #tucker48 @thebridge.hamptons

This was such a highlight for me. So many thoughtful innovations. The door cut into the roofline which the Corvette and others picked and other up in the early 60s. Such an enduring tribute to the power of wish, tenacity and perseverance!
