If your a car nut and enjoy a good movie,and if you still haven’t seen it Tucker:The Man and His Dream, is a great one to watch.
The movie is about the life of Preston Tucker, and a dream to build an automobile that was way ahead of it’s time that the average person could afford.The cars were to be built with features such as a rear engine,disk brakes,a water cooled aluminum block,seat belts,and a third headlight that turned in the direction of the car enabling you to see better at night.
This movie really hits on ideas and inventions that came from Mr. Tucker. The demise of the company was reached when the Tucker corporation started taking preorders for accessories and vehicles to be built,which is common practice among manufacturers today.
