Too fast for the military, but I'll take one.
Tucker was a cool car brand, this YouTube channel called “ up to speed” has a good video on the tucker automobile and war machines
@SaltyVanillaSteak, There's also a fantastic movie about Tucker as well.
@ToddHowardsParents, really? That’s sounds like a cool movie because he lived a cool life
@SaltyVanillaSteak, it’s a really good movie. I think Jeff bridges is in it.
@ToddHowardsParents, Tucker, a man and bis dream
@SaltyVanillaSteak, channel is “Donut Media” and the series on the channel is “Up to Speed” for those wondering
@MildSalsa, ah yes thanks for the clarification. That would have been confusing. Sometimes I’m to lost in YouTube and memes to put a functioning brain cell to work
I mean, that's just top speed.... they could impose speed limits on the drivers if that was the issue... also, an armored vehicle moving at that speed would be an obscene battering ram (and the engine would have to be RIDICULOUS to make the weight of the armor move that fast)
Really, this would be an excellent machine for combat, and they were stupid for passing it up
Just imagine what today's military would look like if this was accepted
Imagine how different the world would be if they contracted Tucker instead of Willys. Jeep probably wouldn't even be a company right now and they never would have expanded the market for off road vehicles in the 50s and 60s, so other cars like the Bronco and Blazer might not have been made either to compete.
Too fast... I gotta know the engine under the hood
@megamanx181x, it's a Hemi.
Meanwhile, jazz groups were lined up around the block to buy them
There’s a hotel in Hot Springs, AR that Al Capone used to frequent, and they have his old bulletproof car on display.
The military did buy the turret. It wound up on the b-14s.
