The August 2017 issue of Hemmings Motor News has a small feature on the Tucker 1044. It was also great meeting all the Tucker fans at the Oyster Bay Concours last Sunday.

Billy Joel's 20th Century Cycles was directly across from Tucker '48 #1044. The shop recently received this banner from Madison Square Garden.

I had a great discussion with Billy Joel's chief mechanic about the Tucker.

As posted in Facebook, he really liked it.
