Tucker Road Trip, Day 14

It's only a short drive over the Hollywood Hills to see our next Tucker.  The Breslow Collection in Northridge, CA is the new home of Tucker No. 1031. No. 1031 was previously owned by the Jay and Eva Busker of Elk Point, SD, who were among the founding members of TACA back in 1973. Before that, it was one of the few Tucker '48s known to have been registered to Preston and Vera Tucker.

In addition to No. 1031, the Breslow Collection's Tucker Gallery includes a variety of Tucker memorabilia. There is a "new old stock" unused Tucker engine, a showroom display for the Motorola Tucker radio and showroom advertising banners. The most unique piece is Vera Tucker's scrapbook of news clippings. Besides the Tucker Gallery, there is also an eclectic assortment of American and European sports cars and vintage ride vehicles from Disneyland.

The Breslow Collection is located in the western San Fernando Valley of Southern California, west of I-405 between US-101 and SR-118.  It is available for viewing by appointment only.  See their website for more information about scheduling a visit.
