    There are a few of us in the Montreal region. I have an SV and I know a couple of gents with Alpines (Bernard Rose with his very nice SIII) and at least 3 with Tigers. All drivers. There are also a few in the Ottawa region I am aware of. At least one Tiger in restoration.

    great to know! I guess the Covid Lockdown won't necessarily prevent any drives or planned get togethers?

    My 1961 Series 2 has had a lot of work done this winter, including cleaning and resealing the gas tank, and repairing the trunk floor to support the tank properly. The engine needed work so I had the head redone and am replacing valves and guides. I also got new LED lights for the dashboard, and the signal and position lights. Currently trying to figure out where to find a replacement thermostat...suggestions would be appreciated. I hope to have it up and running for May.

    UPDATE: After all of the above work was completed, we started the car and everything seemed fine, until we started to see coolant liquid dripping out...the water pump is leaking! Ordered a new pump which should arrive this week, and hopefully we're good to go.

    No, when I joined this site my Rootes car was a Minx so I named myself after it.

    Welcome to the group. The Forum is a good source of information, and the members have a wealth of experience that they are willing to share, and some spare parts and pieces for fellow Rootes enthusiasts.

    Thanks Bob. I am in Ajax. I took delivery last night and have spent the day cleaning it and fixing some minor items (which will be ongoing I am sure). Thanks to Bernard and Alpine 1789 for their welcome.
