PRESTON TUCKER’S DREAM REVIVED


Interesting article here, in Wired Magazine, about a 70 year-old concept car prototype being built by Rob Ida Concepts,  a custom car designer outfit of Morganville, NJ.  The prototype was the brainchild of Preston Tucker, who was best known for the advanced but ultimately unsuccessful Tucker 48 (image below, courtesy of Wikipedia).

Apparently, the concept prototype was never built, so the Idas (father and son), are reconstructing it on the basis of pictures and whatever information they can scrape up.
