Re: Friends In Sunbeams - 2017

Thanks Bill for posting!
We went last year and had a great time. Great driving roads, excellent Mom and Pop eating places and lots of new things to discover with Sunbeam friends. We hope to go this year too.

Re: Sunbeam SOS-Columbia, SC March 31-April 1

How many Alpine owners does it take to push a Tiger off and then on a trailer? Carb problems.....and he towed from Texas!

Re: Sunbeam SOS-Columbia, SC March 31-April 1

Thanks for posting all of the photos Bob. It is great that you and Jean come on down from Ohio every year for this and bring your car too! The Geschkes come from Wisconsin to escape the cold as well.

Re: 1000 mile trip

Have a safe trip Paul! I bet you don't see another Sunbeam on the road either-is Ol' Blue Ed's former car? Give our best to Chuck's family.

Re: MKII oil cooler draining

Hello and welcome! Can you measure the length of the dip stick so another MK2 owner can compare? I am sure the oil cooler drains when you do an oil change as it is higher than the oil pan. Also when checking the oil level using the dip stick, a fair amount of oil is held in the oil filter if you are...

Re: Center Console mounting

No mounts are used-just a few small sheet metal screws. Is the console the original one that came with the car with the ashtray mounted to the front of it ? Not sure why the screw holes don't line up maybe the carpet is causing the height difference? Eric

Wire wheels

Harrington Sebring 2016.JPG I have an Alpine with wire wheels and yes they all use tubes as well as a large "rubber band" that covers the ends of the spokes inside the rim so the tubes don't rub against them and get a leak. You can now buy new wire wheel rims that are sealed with a rubber...

Harrington LeMans 3000RW at Sebring

A friend was at Sebring last week for the vintage races and the one of a kind Harrington LeMans that won the Thermal Index award in 1961 at LeMans was there racing! I had heard that the new owner of this car lives in New England-wish I could have seen and heard it racing again. I last saw this Harri...
