One of our main features in the current edition of Cruzin magazine (#204) is a tour of Ida Automotive in New Jersey. Rob and his father, Bob have quietly been designing and crafting amazing vehicles on America’s east coast for the last two decades. In fact Bob’s history with old cars goes back even further – nostalgia fans will love the side story on his Hemi-Healy drag car which they found and restored accurately. They’ve also been making Tuckers, with the blessing of the Tucker family, and each one unique. Their links with the Tuckers make for interesting reading.
‘Lower 48’ is just one of the reinvented Tuckers, one of just four built at this stage. This one runs a mid-mounted Cadillac North Star V8, and the elegant styling and colour pallet is typical of Rob Ida’s unique approach to custom automobiles. If you like what you see, it’s worth a quick look at his personal website, www.robidaconcepts.com.
If you can’t make it to your local, you can order a copy of Cruzin #204 online below.
