Hey everyone haven't been on for awhile just wanted to tell everyone twin turbo tiger is still running.
Changed cam to a hyd roller didn't really need the big solid roller.
Broke the bolts on the covertor so had it gone thru convertor guy said it looked great inside so just put everything back together.
Went to Houston for a NMCA/NMRA race back in Nov and won the TrueStreetCar 10sec class. Went 9'60 in the quick 16 race.
Went to Tulsa for the Shelby meet it was hot hot and went 9:90@139. Was the only Tiger there people just don't know about the Sunbeam being apart of Shelby builds, but i did hurt some feelings :-)

Good to hear from you Jerry. Sounds like you and the car are still doing great. Hope to get out the next time you're in Houston.
