Wally Swift - A Remembrance

He shared his knowledge and enthusiasm with his many friends, and was active in Tiger events until the very day of his passing. He will me missed by his great number of friends. Others knowledgeable of Wally's specific Chrylser-Rootes Tiger historical remembrances are encouraged to document and send them to us to contribute to our effort with STOC-UK to collect Tiger information during the production era.

"Sunbeam Tiger - 2005"
This is your page. It has been started with what a modern production rendition of what the Sunbeam Tiger might be like by, say, 2005 model entry year. Everybody put on your thinking cap and present a marketable (affordable) concept, maintaining those elements of the Tiger concept that defines the experience and the enthusiast target group. Submittals to the Editor - use plain text and JPEG pics. KISS - (Keep it simple, S---). The better ones will be posted, and the article will grow, as long as there is sufficient interest.

This year no less than 5 historic Tiger true race cars have been invited to participate. We have gathered together a fine editorial team to work with the owner's and drivers selected to compete. This colaboration will present you with a background on the Monterey Historic history and locale, the details of the racing background of the selected cars, retrospectives of both the drivers and owners of these cars, and a countdown to the preparation of each participant - both man and machine, owner and driver. The article is a "Work in Progress", and will change as more preparation details arrive, and the wrap-up with results, then the final issues as the participants tell their version.
