I was about five or six when my Dad took me down to the Tucker
factory on the south side and the "Showing" of the new car. The movie played it pretty well I think. But I was just a little kid on my Dad's shoulders when they finally opened the curtain. To me the third headlight in the middle was a real turn-off and I wanted to go home right then. So we did. But now as I look back at that time I have softened my feelings. Still I do not believe Preston had that convertible beyond the concept stage however Esval did produce a nice looking conversation piece. Quality looks very good compared to the early Brooklins.
