Did you repair or replace some worn out parts?
Add a new accessory?
Take it out for a drive on twisty back roads?

Took the Tiger out of the Tiger's Den and drove the loop several times as the roads were dry. Got home and tucked it back in the den.grinning smiley

Prepped the garage to replace the slave cylinder tomorrow morning. They seem to last me ten years. This time I'm using Castrol DOT 4. I still have the top off for the summer. It's the GT with no soft top.

Tigers, tigers everywheresmiling smiley If you missed it, shame on you!

I had a special invite by Bill Bulpitt, the Coordinator of the event, to bring my Blue Boy V6 to attend the Tiger Group that was at Hilton Head Island November 2nd thru the 4th.

It was a real honor, which I also count a privilege to be amongst all-them-thar-tigers and the owners!

My Sunbeam Alpine, powered by a FORD (Cologne) 2.8 V6 performs quite well, was the only non-tiger present. It drew a lot of attention, probably due to the fact it was the only non-tiger present.

If you have a Sunbeam, please enjoy it to the fullest! Should it not be running, work a few hours each day and Keep'em-on-the-Road!

If you attended the HIlton Concours event post any PICs of the Tigers you may have.....

Kristine and I most recent activity with the Tiger was participating in the "Festival of Cars" held in Bend, Oregon. Cars came from as far away as Tennessee. Most of the cars were exotics. A Mclaren 720S won the "Popular Vote". Our car came in second believe it or not. However, we did win the "Spirit of Motoring" Award. Here are some pictures.

Ross & Kristine, I just went back and took another look at your picture, could it be you that made a U tube video of letting the soft top down on a Sunbeam? If not you I seem to recall a gent that you remind me of....

Boss 302 Tiger Larry Paul
San Pedro, CA, USA   USA
Just an update to say both myself and my 1965 Sunbeam Tiger with a turbocharged Boss 302 are alive and well. The car has been properly stored and cared for and still sports the original wide letter CA license plate "Tiger" both on the front and rear.

I moved it between storage locations a bit more than a year ago and after I installed a new battery and turned it over until I hit full oil pressure, then connected the ignition and put gas in the drained tank as well as a few drops in the carburetor, the car fired up like it had been run the day before.

Just a note to everyone to say hello and like a time capsule, it is unchanged from how I assembled it in the mid 1980s. (I tweaked the motor a bit and increased compression to 9:1 and decreased maximum boost to around 16 lbs from when the articles were published (shown on an earlier thread in the Sunbeam club archives).

Best regards,

Larry Paul.
