    There used to be a car museum near Lancaster, Pennsylvania that had a green or blue Tucker. Once they closed back in the 1990s, I’ve wondered what happened to it.

        Yes, Giest was the name of the auto museum, on Rt. 896, south of Rt. 30 and that thread you were kind enough to post has a picture of it in the museum. I think I can even see the top of the three-wheeled Messerschmidt that was right by the door as you walked in. My grandparents, who lived in Lancaster, took me there several times in the late 80s-early 90s until it closed. I hope those cars are now in good homes. Thank you very much for posting that link.

      Nick – The original “Tin Goose” Tucker #1 is in the Swigart museum in central PA, the website is http://www.swigartmuseum.com/ The Tin Goose was the only Tucker to not have rear suicide doors.

      The museum has an incredible collection of not just cars, but all the automobilia and transportation related stuff too. Bill Swigert began collecting EVERYTHING relating to transportation long before WW2. He established his collection as a public access museum just before WW2 so he didn’t have to give up the stuff for war scrap drives.

      The AACA museum in Hershey, PA houses the Tom Cammack collection of Tuckers [3 cars], plus items like the original prototype chassis, and much more.

      I was lucky to know Tom Cammack, and felt privileged to have been allowed to drive his cars, even if it was only a foot or so to keep the wheel bearings and seals in good condition, because the cars sat in his private museum most of the time.

    Have a great time!

    I haven’t been to Monterey for the Historic Races and Pebble Beach for almost four decades, so I especially look forward to seeing your report.

    On a slightly different thread, does anybody know if the “Ralph Space” museum is still operational? I think it was in Andover, PA. They had a 1916 Premier which they claimed was one of two left worldwide. I have now seen the two of them as the other is owned by my friend in South Africa. They also had a small zoo that contained a Gorilla and a Tiger. Goats had access to the roof.

    A friend of mine back in the day grabbed an extra role in “Tucker”…..haven’t seen it in a while. Need to take another look.
    Josh, on your day off drive down to Big Sur..if you can stay the night check out Deetjens Big Sur Inn just across the road from Nepenthe..restaurant.Orson Welles old house. Great view of the ocean from the patio as you down those Coronas…..I’m jealous…..haven’t been in years. The road down Highway 1 is now open all the way South…….one of the greatest drives on Earth!

    Remember, if there are no pictures it didn’t happen.

    See if they are gonna show a 67 Ford Galaxie 500 black convertable with either a buckskin color interior and top or same car black with burgundy interior and top. I have never been able to ever see one in these 2 color scemes?

    You boys should get your passports in order and take a trip up to a Canadian car show.

      @Rock on – Their passports ARE in order… they are going to Kalifornia.

    @Josh Mortensen – It is rare for me to say this, but I envy you. Monterey is possibly the most perfect spot on the face of the earth. I lived in Riverside for 9 years, but it wasn’t until many years later, when I was giving a presentation to a weekend conference held there, that I discovered this marvelous community.

    I seriously considered moving there, until I picked up a local real estate listing magazine. WOW! This was almost 25 years ago, and at that time you couldn’t get a doublewide manufactured home on virtually no land, with no view of the ocean, for less than $1M! It bears repeating… WOW!

    Perfect area, unattainable for most, though. Soak it up, as much as you can, while you can.

    You will love the trip! I was born in Carmel, grew up in Monterey and Pacific Grove. Used to sneak in into 17 mile drive and retrieve golf balls from the water traps in pebble beach and resell them to the golfers for a tidy profit;) left there in my teenage years and could never go back.
