Congratulations Howard! The car looks fantastic and having the Tucker family there with you I’m sure impressed everyone including the judges. Wish I could have been there. I’ve been to the Amelia event twice and it’s a beautiful setting for a car show.

Thank you for all the great pictures and the video. Wonderful to see and all your family as well. A great memorable experience for all .Congratulations again. Once again Howard, you stepped up to see a historic car restored to the way it was when new and share the joy with all of us. Those of us living on Long Island are especially lucky to see your cars in person.

Mazel tov on your Tucker award at Amelia Island.  It’s well deserved.  It was an honor to see the Tucker at your shop a few weeks ago.
