In the 1940s, Preston Tucker had a dream. The car salesman from Ypsilanti wanted to give a war-weary America a brand new car. A car for the future.
But that dream was torpedoed by the Securities and Exchanges Commission, which chased him down with accusations of fraud.
Tucker's is one of the most interesting and sad stories in American business history.
Writer Steve Lehto explores the rise and fall of this fascinating entrepreneur in his newest book, Preston Tucker and His Battle to Build the Car of Tomorrow.
