Hi Gang.. Just thought I would try to introduce and one of my babies. I've had the Tiger for 4yrs now, I've wanted one ever since I watched them race at Road America way back when.. Mine is a 66 Mk1a with a edelbrock 600cfm and performer rpm intake. The 260 is stock other than the carb set up and motivates rather well. When I got the car it needed most of the interior and the trunk finished, and the suspension massaged.. Now with front and rear swaybars and traction bars she hooks up pretty good. My next project is ungrading the Dana 44 to posi. I also have a 74 TR6 that I have had since new. I show both cars and used to hillclimb and autocross the TR.. I will post pics of both.. Jimi

Anybody that runs a small block Ford must have his head screwed on right and is certainly welcome on this forum. One of the sweetest exhaust notes I remember as a teenager, was my friends '65 Tiger Mk1 260 pictured below.......
