Tuckers in the News This Weekend

Tucker No. 1010
Two Tucker '48s will be making news this Saturday, January 22nd.  First, Tucker No. 1010 will be crossing the Gooding & Company auction block in Scottsdale, AZ.  We'll watch with interest to see how much this "barn find" Tucker brings in light of recent auction records.

Tucker No. 1039
Also on Saturday, Tucker No. 1039 will go on public display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History on the Mall in Washington, DC.  As one of two winners in the recent "Race to the Museum," No. 1039 will be on view for 30 days from January 22, 2011, to February 21, 2011.
