Thank you for documenting and sharing these videos Howard. Must have been a sad day when the museum closed. Good to see that the buildings are utilized. Thanks for sharing your memories Walt.

I’m thinking of going to the Simeone Museum, have not been there, on the 30th to combine the viewing of the collection, and the lecture. There’s is a general admission, will that cover both the viewing, and lecture??, or a special reservation for the lecture??

Sam, don’t think yourself as old, it’ll only make you older. Your work is so much appreciated now by many and for many more generations to come. Maintain Sam III speed as usual, and as fluent as you do. You’ll be glad you did. I wouldn’t have it any other way, as I’m sure many others wouldn’t as well.

The light colored Roadster is by Locke. 1926 was the first year for that body. They had 21” wire wheels.

Those buildings were put up in 1947 or 1948. Amazing they have not totally rusted away considering that the ocean is not terribly far away, salt sea air etc. I spent many happy hours there, have many many stories and memories of the man, the cars, the friends etc. Perhaps one of the fondest memories was the party Austin had when the museum closed and he had a traditional jazz band there to play a New Orleans style wake. Cartoonist Charles Addams ( of the Addams family) was there for the wake with his wife Tee, and wore a black arm band that night in tribute to the museum closing.  Austin loved traditional jazz and he and I would go into NY City to Jimmy Ryan’s jazz club on West 54th street often. The Iron Range Days he held were absolutely great ( when you were invited to buy parts etc) It was from that site that Austin gave me a ride in his type 35 Mercer raceabout up North Sea Road and back down again to the museum, and he told me we had the car up to nearly 100 mph. It was interesting trying to stay in that car on a bucket seat with no seat belt, doors , windshield etc. Fond memories of the great fellows who he had working for him there like father and son Eddie and Lance Aldrich too. All kinds of good stuff - when back in the ‘truck barn’ up on a ladder and looking in a bin 20 feet off the ground having a racoon stare back at me as I looked into one of the bins…...............the circa WWI era carved oak table that was in the lobby that had brochures of local sites piled on it I bought from Austin as well as a matching china cabinet and those have resided in my house now for about 40+ years , and fond memories are generated every time I look at them.

Everyone , I would greatly appreciate ANY comments regarding this dealership and who may have worked for them in any capacity . I am very happy the HCC decided to publish this and turn the spotlight on long island, our home base,  once again!
To all of you that I had the opportunity to say hello to in person recently at the Waterfront Garage event (that Howard hosted for us to see the his amazing restored Tucker) it was indeed a great pleasure . Thank you so very much for your gracious comments regarding the stories that I am having published in HCC on a regular basis. Thanks too , to Howard for having us over to his great “car place” to see the cars, and all the cool stuff that he and Ian Z. too, have collected. Santa’s toy shop on long island! It doesn’t get any better then this.

What a beautiful restoration and Waltz blue tone that brought back an early memory of a ‘67 Camaro. More amazing painstaking work done correctly. Tucker’s 1043 and 1044 in my opinion are now running neck to neck towards the perfection finish line. Congrats!

We will be doing a presentation with Howard Kroplick’s Tucker 1044 with the Simeone Museum on the 30th of this month. There will be a lecture on Tucker history followed by an in depth review of the preservation of Tucker 1044. Finally we will be doing a demo drive of the car itself. Should be a great time! Tickets are limited - link is in my bio.

I never actually been here when it was active, but definitely enjoyed learning of the museum’s history and Henry Austin Clark of course. Norsic Family said they would utilize the property & buildings, and that’s exactly what is seen here. Thanks for documenting, Howard.

Congratulations Howard and your Tucker team. The Amelia Island events something that I had know about but didn’t realize the size and prestige of the event, I am very impressed, A Pebble Beach East? Hope to go at some point in the future?
