An old friend showed up at my house today. In 1988 I sold a modified 65 Tiger it was a car I bought from Andy Hollis in the Baltimore area, at the time it was baby blue with fiberglass flared fenders. When i rebuilt it, I had the flares done with some gremlin front fenders I cut off at a Junkyard and welded on. In 1988 I sold the car because of family obligations. So last week I saw the car on eBay and I won it. From the looks of the receipts it appears that the two other owners have taken car of my car for the past 28 years, My wife seems to like it also. Its good to have it back in the garage (in Florida now((lets see how the cooling system likes that)) and good to see some familiar names in TEAE.

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
