The Tucker.

You might have noticed "1948 Tucker" in the links. The Tucker car was way ahead of its time. Take a look. Tucker, himself, was a very clever man and a passionate man. "Tucker, the movie" is one of my favourites. It is an insight into what can happen to a non-mainstream car manufacturer. Tucker's car was so innovative that it was seen as a threat to the big Detroit car builders and his finance mysteriously dried up. Even small Australian car builders should see this movie just to be aware of the pitfalls. It would be a good one for next year's Cruisin' Classics drive-in night. For similar reasons, I guess, I also enjoyed "Who Killed the Electric Car".
