    Excited to share. New life, new energy!

    We've owned our Alpine for almost 20 years but unfortunately, for a bunch of different reasons (wouldn't start, wouldn't stop...) have hardly used it in the last 10. It's amazing how confidence in reliability can hurt the relationship between car and driver. But I am delighted to say that is...

    Huge Thanks

    Big shoutout to 'Stephen' from Waxhaw, NC, for giving up his Friday night and Saturday morning to help me get my Series 3 running again after it's been sitting for 2 years. I owe you dinner at Maxwell's, mate. Needed plugs, air in tires, and fuel filter/lines and carbs clearing out. Will do a...

    Lifetime Membership

    I have been a long time Sunbeam owner, since 1983, but not a regular member/participant. It tends to be an afterthought TBH. I could see a select few long term owners who might make a larger upfront commitment and then feel more vested long term. This group would likely still ‘donate’ annually...

It has been done about 4,000 dry miles in our ownership and as you can see it is still in beautiful condition. Everything works and the only issue we've ever had is a...
