The Tucker 1044 Team

For the Tour, Tucker 1044 had whitewalls. At Sunday's Concours, Tucker 1044 was switched to the factory correct blackwalls.

Howard, best of luck at Pebble Beach, I can wait to see 1044 in person. A better honor couldn’t happen to a better keeper of automotive history. Enjoy the trip! I hope to attend this show some day as spectator, it’s on my bucket list!
All the best !

Seems PB is turning out to be great fun   Look forward to hearing about the drive and how 1044 peerformed. vs the other Tuckers.  ..Wonder too about the significance of the numbers e.g.  does the owner of Tucker number 1008 have more prestige than owner number 1009 if I may ask.  Enjoy yourself!  .

Looking really fit and ready….

Ken’s typo, “peerformed” is actually quite apt!  5 0f 12 peers.  Guess we’re ALL on tenterhooks.  Break a leg!  Sam, III

What an incredible shot (CNCPICS)!  At first glance, it’s heart-stopping!  Hope Howard and 1015 were going slowly (TWO hands on the wheel, Howard!).  Shades of the early Motor Parkway - no divider and narrow roadway!  [BTW - in RR parlance, they are “meeting” (facing), not “passing” (overtaking).]  Sam, III

YEAH !!!

Absolutely LOVE the shot by CNCPics of our Tucker 1015 and Tucker 1044 “meeting”!  It was such a great experience to be a part of!

The capture of those Tuckers meeting is as close to a time machine as possible, in full color! Nice work by all!

Just noticed the background of the “Team” photo (beware men with beards!); sure looks like one of only 35 Packard Darrin convertible Victorias built from 1937 to 1942 at the right.  That’s even rarer than the Tuckers!  Heady company, indeed.  Sam, III
