What’s a valve cover race?
Think Pine Wood derby for automotive enthusiasts. Take your favorite valve cover, add wheels, and go racing. Is a Buick straight 8 valve cover faster than a Chevy, Studebaker, Ford, Chrysler or flat head side cover? Bring yours to the Car Show and find out. If you do not have a valve cover to race, we have valve covers available to borrow! Ladies and Gentlemen, “START – YOUR -GRAVITY!!”

Tucker Talk: The Tin Goose Tucker Prototype
In June of 1947, Preston Tucker introduced the world to the Tucker automobile by unveiling the prototype, The Tin Goose. The Tin Goose holds a special place in the history of Tucker Automobiles as the very first Tucker that was hand-built as the prototype. The Tin Goose was also innovative in its design, technology and safety features that were not available in other American automobiles at that time. Tucker produced 50 production automobiles, along with the Tin Goose Prototype, of which 47 still exist today.
