I got some very sad news today that Bob Tucker of Orlando, FL passed away this week. Bob was a very special
person, a true Southern Gentleman, but a fierce competitor on the drag strip and a very talented mechanic and
fabricator. He raced one of the extremely rare '63 Z11 427 Impalas which had many wins and held many records.
He also raced a ZL1 Camaro and built another one for drag racing. He built too many cars to fully mention here
but of pertinent interest is that he is the one that built and prepared the Joie Chitwood Camaro for Trans-Am
racing. I was very pleased and fortunate to be able to record a conversation with him discussing the very build
of that car. My heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Ann who just this week sent me a wonderful photo CD
filled with photos of Bob's cars when I'm sure she had many other things on her mind. Two very special people.
God bless them both.
