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 ...

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...

I bought a roll of carpet from Tappers in Birmingham and used the existing carpets as templates. I found a lady in the local market who had a sewing machine capable of binding the edges of the ones that required edging. The binding I sourced from Woollies. This way you can choose the quality of carp...
