As of 30th January we have six UK cars booked to go to California. Three red ones, two white and one green!

The new website, which is due to go live early in February will have a section devoted to the California Tour.

I use Sunbeam Classic Spares (Chris and Julie Draycott). Unless you can get hold of original panels then all pattern panels may be slightly off, even a wing for a Ford Capri won't fit as well as an original from Ford. I've just had to replace umpteen bits on my Tiger trying to put right 50 years of ...

There's a good possibility that the venue of the 2017 Tigers United event will be at the old McClennan Air Force Base just outside Sacramento. So we should now be able to get a reasonably accurate route for the tour sorted out. The only issue lies with sorting out the best method of shipping the Tig...

I understand that they still use the Corsa power steering unit and that they cut your Tiger column. Why don't you contact Jim Oven in Monmouth (JO Engineering). His units are much cheaper and use a shortened Alpine column, you get to keep the Tiger unit in case one day you want to change it back. Ha...

The new website isn't far off being launched. The images section will be updated when it goes active. The existing site can only be managed by one person, the intention with the new site is that several members will look after certain allotted pages. Whoever will be in control of the images page wil...

Yes, I run with 14" wheels.

Definitely a worth while upgrade, easy to fit. Just unbolt the originals, fit the new one's and bleed the brakes.

Apparently the original dust shield do need a bit of modification.

Car show boards

Can someone tell me if anyone in the UK does the information boards that you put in front of your car at a car show. Either on the windscreen or free standing in front of the car

I did a search on Google but it only came up with suppliers in the USA.

Thanks

Lou.

Weather permitting we could join a morning Whale watching tour prior to driving up to San Francisco A typical t...

Silverstone Classic video

In car video from this years Silverstone Classic. A bit boring to watch and to have driven as it was so slow.

As I recollect when I spoke to Charles at Real Steel, he didn't say that Valvoline wasn't any good just that some other oils such as Penrite has a higher level of zinc, more = better? Apparently not if you read the test in the following link: http://speedtalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=35836 Bear...
