Alpine or Tiger? Either way a great car.

You only need the Jag for the set!

Here's the mighty BMW. Can't understand why I sold this little beauty...

It is a Tiger, I am having to be very disciplined not to start working on it.

Hi Ian
The underside is in very good condition but the lower parts of the front and rear wings need some TLC! I will be doing the same as on the plus 2, a full nut and bold rebuild. I do not intend it to take as long as the Lotus but in fairness I have had some interruptions along the way with the project.

Isn't the ride height a "touch" low there Dan? Very nice Club Ford and I'll bet it is fun :D :D

Hello John,

Yes it is. It's like driving your own roller coaster.

Regards,
