It was a battle between Corvettes, Ford GTs, Ferrari, Lambos, and Porsches at the Virginia International Raceway (VIR). These are the same high-end race cars that compete at Le Mans and Daytona.

The Tucker exhibit at the AACA Museum was made possible because of David Cammack's passion for this special car. Cammack not only collected the three cars currently on display, he also accumulated parts, prototype equipment, and a treasure trove of original documents associated with the Tucker 48. See Video.
The star of the show was an original, unrestored Corvette, a 1967 427/435. Meticulously cared for in climate-controlled storage, it was never driven in the rain, never parked in the sun, and it was stored in the owner's garage on four carpeted jacks. It sold for $675,000.
