1948 Tucker

1948 Tucker

I mentioned yesterday that I had spent a wonderful time down at Dick's Classic Garage on Saturday morning. Here's the first image I've processed from the visit - a 1948 Tucker. You will be seeing many more shots from the museum over the coming weeks since I essentially had the place to myself for 4 hours (everyone else in Central Texas was obviously out Christmas shopping).

The museum is about 2 years old and hosts somewhere around 50 pristine classic American cars. Most are from the 1930s to 1950s - a superb collection of wonderfully curvey, chromey machines. If you are even vaguely interested in automobile history, I can strongly recommend a visit to this museum.

By the way, I need to thank Van Sutherland for introducing me to the place via one of his blog posts a couple of months ago. Thanks, Van!

    They don’t make them like that anymore! Tight crop works so well. And yes, I’m with Jim – that car definitely has a smile on it’s face. Great image
