Several 1948 Tucker Automobiles will be part of the show field at the 2012 Glenmoor Gathering Sept. 14-16, including an unrestored Tucker from the Gilmore Car Museum Collection.
A total of 51 cars were built before production stopped and most of them survive today. The distinctive car – the brainchild of Preston Tucker – was designed by Alex Tremulis.
In all, more than 200 vintage and classic American and European automobiles and motorcycles will be on the show field near Canton, Ohio. The motorcycle class will feature classic 1928-48 American motorcycles. There also will be a display of “mini” cars, steam-powered cars, Allard automobiles, early supercharged cars and a unique class – “The Trans Atlantics” – automobiles with European and U.K. coachwork with American engines.
The 2012 weekend activities will include the Passport Transport Countryside Tour, cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges’ program and other family activities. Two of the weekend highlights will be automotive seminars; a design seminar will be hosted by artist Peter Maier while Wayne Carrini of “Chasing Classic Cars” and noted collector Ralph Marano will team up to discuss how to buy a collector car. During the concours, automotive art by a variety of artists will be displayed and on sale. Several automotive authors also will be in attendance to sell and autograph their books.
On Sunday, there will again be a separate, special display on the club’s front lawn of “World Class performance Cars,” including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Porsches. The popular display of hand-built scale model automobiles and engines also will return.
