Tucker 1044 Open House Draws a Great Crowd at Ida Automotive in New Jersey

Despite the threat of a Nor' easter, over 200 people came to Ida Automotive in Marlboro, New Jersey to view Tucker 1044. As seen below and as posted in several Facebook photo albums, a wonderful time was had by all.

Thanks to the Tucker 1044 Team: Rob Ida, Mike Tucker, Sean Tucker and Bob Ida for your hospitality and friendship!

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for inviting us car folk to see your jewel like masterpiece of a car.  It was fabulous to get even a little closer than one can get at Hershey and actually see inside.  Thanks for directing me to Sean, I did get the answer on the lack of rain gutters as for aerodynamics he showed where the rain gutter was integrated under the bulkhead door and it used the smallest of gaskets for when it was closed.  A well engineered piece, and also it dawned on me no doghouse, or driveshaft tunnel in the back seat just like today’s FWD and AWD cars.  Interesting all the stuff he did which showed up later.
