New Concours Awards. Miles/Boskoff Cups

I'm pleased to say that the STC Committe have supported my suggestion to name the new STC concours cups after Ken Miles and George Boskoff. Until now the Club has only had one trophy, The Caroll Shelby Cup for the winner of the standard class at the annual concours awards. To make things a bit faire...

South African Tiger and E-Type

The link below is for a South African Magazine feature on Roger Wood's SA Tiger in Cape Town. Also worth reading is the article on Roger's E-Type on page 30, which tells the story of the car in civil war Zimbabwe and how the car was used to tow a boat and another trailer when the family escaped the ...

Wanted - Cast Iron 4V Intake Manifold

Does anyone have an original cast iron inlet/intake manifold they don't want? Must be the 4V (Four Barrel) type.

Thanks

Re: Gordon Bennett Irish Classic Run 2019

Emerald Isle to rumble in 19.

Nine UK Tigers will be crossing the Irish Sea next June to take part in the Gordon Bennett Classic Car Tour. A further three Tigers will travel from France and Germany plus possibly two from Ireland itself.

It should be a great party.

Re: Cats Whiskers

I think Graham is correct. regarding the Tiger name sur le continent. It worked the other way in the UK with Renault, they could not sell the Alpine GTA/610 in the UK as an Alpine, it was branded as a Renault as Rootes had the trademark for the Alpine name in the UK. This trademark did not apply on ...

Re: Hard top restoration

Chrome trim goes in after the rubber and window is fitted. It's a pig to fit and doesn't look right when done. I got my local restorers to do mine when they sprayed the top, they glued the connector in to get it to stay in place. Sorry but can't take any photos as the top is away having a new headli...

Order one of the new Sunbeam Tiger club floppy hat; rigorously tested last summer in the deserts of California.

Koni's are becoming difficult to source for some older cars. I wanted a set for my 63 Falcon Sprint as they were the original fitment to the works rally cars. the rears are the same as a Mustang but the fronts for the US Falcons had been discontinued. On a off chance I tried Koni's for an Australian...
