Tucker Road Trip, Day 2

Tucker No. 1001
The next stop on the Tucker Road Trip is Alexandria, VA, home of The Cammack Collection.  Dave Cammack's wonderful collection--open by appointment only, but free of charge--is located in a non-descript warehouse tucked into Old Town Alexandria, just minutes from Washington, DC off I-495.

Tucker No. 1022
The crown jewels of the collection are three--count 'em, THREE--Tucker '48s: No. 1001, No. 1022 and No. 1026.  The Cammack Collection also includes Tucker parts, engines, original blueprints, photos and other articles.  It is by far the largest and most complete collection of Tucker automobile memorabilia in the world.  TACA members will recall visiting the collection during our 2007 convention in Washington, DC.

Tucker No. 1026
Contact information for The Cammack Collection can almost always be found in the most-recent issue of our monthly printed newsletter, Tucker Topics, available to TACA members as a benefit of their annual membership.  You can also contact us here at our blog (, and we'll get you the information you'll need to arrange a visit.
