Tucker was a revolutionary. Only 52 Tuckers were built, but Their impact is still felt! Amazing is this, that 47 of Tucker automobiles are still known and in existence today! 🙂

When they tried to buy him, he refused. When they tried to bully him, he resisted.
When they tried to break him, he became an American legend.

    One of my favorite movies! We lack men like Tucker today. Too bad American politics put him out of business!

  2. Jason Carpp Says:

    One of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I haven’t seen the movie since it first premiered in movie theatres.

    Generally accurate commentary on a great man! Very inspiring.
