Hello out there.
I'm new to this forum although I participate in a couple others. I've been a Sunbeam owner for 28 years this summer and still have my original Alpine in fact. How many folks will admit to still driving they're high school car?? I also have a early Tiger that I bought in the mid 90's and redid from the ground up. To make matter more interesting, I have an early 63 E-type coupe I'm currently redoing that I've had since 84 when it was my daily driver. Wish I'd known that prices would come down so much when I was offered an obsurd amount in 89. I might have sold it and bought another later....
Oh, forgot to mention a 38 MG TA and a 49 MG TC which were bought as cheap partial cars that I've slowly been collecting missing bits for. They're probably end up as retirement projects.

welcome Mike..
It sounds like you have a handful... I do not have my HS car any more .. but did sell my bike.. a 73 Kawasaki 500 ... just a few years ago.

Nice bunch of cars you have...

Lack of kids means money flows in other directions....
Plus, I could never resist a rusty, crusty, beatup old project. If you'd seen the condition of some of the stuff I've brought home you'd wonder why I haven't been committed.

Hi,Mike... too bad you're not closer to California. I have a crusty old project I'd be happy to let you wrench on images/icons/grin.gif

Do you have photos on a site somewhere?

Nope, nothing online. Just never felt the need for an electronic camera and all that stuff. Besides, it somehow seems almost sacreligious when you look at the lucas systems we all love.....
