Lately the Club has received more questions about the 'Alpine 260' Tiger; the European spec export machine.
It is well known that many of the LRO Tigers fetched up in the USA having been been bought in Germany by US Forces personnel and later air freighted back home.
But one tit bit worth a post is that the largest supplier of Tigers to the US forces in Germany was "All State Motors" in Weisbaden. This outfit was the supply point for the USAF at Ramstein. The Ramstein base was so vast it had it's own drag strip where Tigers were regularly featured!
If you run this British Pathe clip from 1966 to about 2.50 mins it shows "All State Motors" http://www.britishpathe.com/video/ameri ... in-germany
Post questions or infirmation about the factory history of the Tiger
