From the Editor Mission statement Our magazine mission is to be one of the most valuable sources of information and resources in automobile events. We are committed to presenting high quality reports and maintaining excellence in editorial content. ***************************************** Publisher, Carlos Cevallos Chief Editor, Art Fernandez Photo Editor, Carlos Cevallos Art Director, Rubén D.

Re-Engineering the Classics In the early 1950’s, top speed in our highways was about 50MPH, the average distance between vehicles was about a “football field” and if you needed directions, a gas station would sell you a map. Today technology has truly spoiled us, with cruise control, GPS, navigation and on board computers that can even call for reservations at your favorite restaurant. So what do you do if you want all those great innovation’s in your old vehicle? You enter the world of The HOT ROD, a special place were you will find methods and parts to bring that vintage car to present standards. With a multitude of aftermarket company’s constantly re-engineering and fabricating new parts like, suspensions, engines, electronics also safety equipment and creature comforts. That now apply to classics and virtually anything on wheels. So with all this in mind, do not be so surprised when you are on your next trip on the Turnpike and see a 1957 Chevy passes you up at 95 MPH, with its window’s up enjoying a tune on its mp-3 radio and ice cold A/C. In our magazine you will see some fine examples of these special vehicles, and the owners that went through the build.

Kissimme,

**ARTICLE BY RAC ACHEL A CHEL MCINTEE Old Town, Kissimmee, FL is the home of the most well known classic car cruise in the world, the Saturday Nite Cruise®. We take pride in the part we play bringing car enthusiasts together to celebrate a time when the automobile was more than just an appliance, a time when the automobile was the blend of the all-American ideals of individualism and freedom. Whether you were getting your kicks on route 66 or just heading for the drive-in, these cars were anything but basic transportation. Soaring tail fins, oversized taillights, chrome-plated metalwork, and over the top upholstery transformed automobiles into art that was lovingly washed and polished by teenagers every weekend before they cruised down to the local hang out. Old Town captures this feeling every Saturday night and we invite all pre-1975 hot rods, street rods, and antiques to join us as we cruise down memory lane. The cars start arriving at 1:00p.m., a live Oldies band takes the Main Stage starting at 7:00p.m. The cars cruise down Old Town’s brick streets at 8:30p.m. ¶

On a sunny 4th of July holiday in Florida, he found his dream car at a car show in Miami Springs. The next day he purchased the vehicle and has had it ever since. After owning the car for several years and enjoying many cruises and car shows, the car fever bug struck him again! This time “Ozzy” wanted the full experience of building his own hot rod. He chose a 1955 second generation GMC pickup truck he currently owned and used as a daily driver. The build took him two years, after some set backs, he finally got it just the way he wanted.

The color choice was yellow to match the other hot rod and give the vehicle a nostalgic look. A staggered tire wheel combination was used, 17 inches in the front and 18 inches in the rear, cragar SS, plus a custom suspension with disc breaks. Giving it a hot rod stance, the truck has an assortment of modifications including: power steering, power windows, power brakes, vintage air conditioning, and a back up camera to avoid hitting any objects. It also has an electric bed cover. The custom interior is accented with leather seats, door panels, new gauges, and a tilt steering Column. The heart of this truck is a tuned port Chevy 350 corvette motor, with an automatic overdrive transmission and lots of chrome under the hood. This truck has the modern technology that keeps it safe out on the modern day street, but at the same time it maintains its classic look. This fortunate owner has spent countless hours and loads of money creating that one-of-a-kind ride. The “to do list” on one of these projects is endless, specially when everything is customized to the owner’s taste. There will be plenty of times when these projects get the best of you. Although, it is also very rewarding when things start to come together and you accomplish re-engineering marvels in that one-of-a-kind vehicle. This reminds me of a popular TV credit card commercial where the prices are broken down; a 1955 Chevy truck: $3500, parts for restoration: $40,000, labor hours: $35,000. Driving to pick up Junior at school in a perfectly re-engineered, personalized vehicle: PRICELESS. As for the owner of these two custom yellow vehicles, it is uncertain when the car fever bug will strike again.¶

Nostalgia

The TUCKER 48 **INTRODUCTION BY: ART FERNANDEZ

Preston Tucker A man with ideas ahead of his time. In present day I’d say he was a time traveler, a term recently used, meaning a person that can travel to the future as well as the past, you remember that movie, “Back to the future”, with the Delorean, that is the idea. The Tucker Torpedo, a car that was filled with innovations that are now a part of our normal daily driven vehicles. Let’s go back in the time machine to 1948... 20 Rods & Classics


**ARTICLE BY: GEORGE FERNANDEZ The Tucker 48 was a the dream of Preston Tucker. He wanted to build a safe car that was affordable and full of innovations. After landing government funds and innovative business dealings he got the money he needed to begin the project. Preston Tucker managed to acquire an old aircraft plant in Chicago, Illinois. There he began to build the famous Tucker 48. He lured car designer Alex Tremulis to help with the car’s design. Tucker priority was to build the safest car on the road. He began with some innovations that were ahead of their time. This made the Big Three Auto Makers; General Motors, Ford and Chrysler take notice. The new features Tucker wanted were: •Directional Third Headlight •Rear Engine •Perimeter Frame Protection •Roll Bar Integrated Roof •Steering Box behind the front axle •Controls within easy reach of the steering wheel. •Padded Dash •Shattered Proof Windshield •Key Locking Parking Brake for theft protection

•Doors extended to roof for easy entry and exit. •The drive train could be lowered in minutes for quick maintenance. •4 Wheel Independent Suspension Tucker further envisioned added innovations to the car. But, due to high cost in development and other problems they were never implemented. These features would have been: •Mag Wheels •Disc Brakes •Fuel Injection •Self Sealing Tubeless Tires •Direct Drive Torque Converter Tucker also promised a 150 horse power engine. After much development he settled on the O-335 Aircraft Engine. This was an air cooled engine which had to be converted to water cooled. The engine developed 166 hp which was more than adequate for its use. The engine was mated to the Tucker Y-1 transmission. The car proved to be road worthy and very safe for its time. One of the Tucker prototypes was rolled in a test run at 95 mph. All the safety features worked as the driver was able to ...Continues on page 22

walk away from the crash with only some minor bruises. After the change of a damaged tire, the car was able to drive away. Tuckers were also tested for 18 hour runs at the Indianapolis International Speedway. The tests proved the car to be safe, tough and reliable.

Investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the US Justice Department into Preston Tucker’s business dealings led to the Tucker 48’s demise. Though Tucker was acquitted of any wrong doing, the damage had already been done. Public perception had been tarnished. Some say that the Big Three had something to do with Tucker’s down fall. It would have cost millions of dollars for the Big Three to compete with “The Tucker”. After all, they were the top dogs on the block. Who was this guy Tucker, coming in and setting new standards in automotive safety and design? People would think that GM, Ford and Chrysler didn’t care about building safe automobiles. Preston Tucker managed to build 51 Tucker 48s before the company closed in 1949. Today these Tucker 48s are extremely collectable if you can afford one. The last Tucker 48 sold at auction in 2012. That one sold for over $2.9 million dollars. So where can you go see an actual real Tucker? Well, it so happens that we are fortunate enough to have one right here in Florida. The Tallahassee Automobile Museum has a Tucker 48 on display. This green Tucker 48 was the car used in the movie “Tucker A Man And His Dream”. According to the museum the Tucker was purchased sometime before 1995 by museum founder Devoe L. Moore. He also purchased the Studebaker that was made to look like a Tucker for the Movie. The Tucker look-a-like was used as a stunt double. This car is the one that rolls over during a test run at the Indianapolis International Speedway. Rolling a real Tucker was just out of the question!! If you are ever in the Tallahassee area, please visit the Tallahassee Automobile Museum. They are located at 6800 Mahan Dr. Tallahassee, Fl..¶
