Default Tuckers in Nashua, NH

While trying to find the street address for where the original east coast Tucker dealer was located (without luck), I came across this article from 1947 in the Nashua Telegraph. It's interesting how much the winters have shifted. You would have to have a very odd year to get that depth of snow on that mountain in December. Now it would be occurring late January - early February. The last sentence is interesting as well . . .

"
DEC 31, 1947 Temperature, 36 Whether the weatherman was determined to leave a good impression, or what, this was a pretty decent day, especially in view of what had been forecast. It was moderate in the temperature line and, despite an uncertain morning; overcast, was due to be a fairly pleasant day -and night. High yesterday was 28 and this morning's low was 17, reports the Pennlchuck pumping j station. The forecast; Partly cloudy tonight , fair tomorrow. Little change in temperature.

DAVE GREGG TO DEMONSTRATE HIS SNO-CAT Tomorrow at the Nashua Country Club-

David A. Gregg, 2nd, is planning to give a demonstration at 2 in the afternoon of his Sno-Cat, which was the first 1 motor vehicle ever to climb Pack Monadnock last Sunday, when the owner, his daughter Carolyn and Austin W. Sanbom were its passengers in the climb to the summit. Mr. Gregg stated that during this pioneer attempt to scale Pack Monadnock through snow, he encountered from two to four feet of snow and the climb took 20 minutes. He said today he believed it requires 10 minutes for a car to climb the mountain in dry weather in the summer, These Sno-Cats, said Mr. Gregg, are designed to supplement ski tows where these are in operation, or to be used In areas where such tows are not practical, or where it is necessary to move equipment to meet changes in snow conditions, The Nashua man bought his vehicle in Oregon and it was delivered here last June. It was used it in the White Mountains prior to last Sunday's trip up Pack Monadnock. Mr. Gregg's Sno-Cat is not the first one to be demonstrated in New Hampshire, since last winter an attempt was made to climb Mt. Washington with one of them owned out of the state. It is expected that another attempt to climb Mt. Washington with a larger unit that will be made this winter, he said. A corporation is being formed for the assembly and distribution of those Sno-Cats in Plymouth, this state, said Mr. Gregg, with himself, Charles W Tobey, Jr, and Roy B, Doming as principals."
