Sunbeam at AACA Museum

Saw this Tiger parked out in front of the AACA Museum in Hershey PA last Sunday.
Not sure if it was are real one or not. It was automatic.....so that makes me wonder.

Overall, it was a great looking and very well finished car (but I wasn't crazy about the unsupported roll bar).

Thanks for sharing! What a great town. We'll be there in a couple of weeks for the big AACA show. My dad always brings a client's car for the show, and my sons and I go up and spend the weekend with him. It's sort of our father-son bender weekend -- cars, junk food and chocolate. By Sunday, I feel more hung over after all the junk food and chocolate than I ever did from drinking too much in my indiscreet youth.

the tiger is real. it belongs to tiger tom ehrhart. it has had many updates over the years including the auto trans,electric windows,ac, etc. tom lives nearby and works at the museum. the roll bar is unique and is functional.

Hey Bob-Are you sure he is not driving a converted autobox Alpine?!
Actually Tiger Tom's car is probably the most modified and most recognized Tiger on the East coast. And I can't believe that he is selling it! Eric

eric,
i have driven TT's tiger and it sure doesn't drive like an auto alpine. it's unique! i've often wondered where his matching race tiger is now. you have to admit that it was quite a sight to see this tiger pulling a trailer with a matching race car. but that was many years ago.
