Re: Great one owner Alpine story

I checked the roster and they are not members. They live in upper NY state. You really need to subscribe-this is the best magazine in the USA about British and all sorts of vintage cars! Maybe Tod can get permission to print the article in the next Rootes Review?

Great one owner Alpine story

In the latest Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car magazine there is a several page article about a New England one owner Alpine being passed on to his son and all the fun they have had with it since buying it new in the UK. I love reading stories like that!

Re: New (old) Member

Welcome back Gary! Sometimes you can go home again....do you have any photos of your Tiger when you sold it and what it looks like now? There are lots of Sunbeams in Florida to hang out with at shows. Come join us at the United in Atlanta this Fall! Eric

Bill B saw the Tiger at Amelia and may have talked them into bringing it to the Atlanta United later this year!

Thanks to all those who have registered. Early registration ends on March 18th-after that the price goes up and you won't get a free T shirt for registering early! See y'all soon. Eric

Re: Hillman motor (engine) mounts

I've pulled a few Alpine and Tiger engines and it is lots easier to drop the front crossmember and take the engine and trans out as a unit from the bottom. I bet a Minx would be the same! Eric
