      Hi New Member atknhbob from Atkinson, NH USA I am a recent new owner of two Sunbeam Alpine V series cars. #1 The Deerfield Special is a 66 Sunbeam Alpine series V (roller project car) that has been sitting in a barn in Deerfield, NH since the early 70`s the last registration was for 1972, expiring in 1973, hence "The Deerfield Special" a solid car with a wrong engine in it ( Hillman Husky series IIIa ) that needs to be re-assembled (the car) that is. #2 Is a 67 Sunbeam Alpine series V running / driving older restoration that I picked up in Indiana off of ebay in July of this year in good condition. My ex-wife used to tell everyone " If it says Made in England Bob will buy it. " My first Rootes Group car was a 1959 Singer Gazelle back in the 70`s, then a Triumph Spitfire in the 80`s (non Rootes of course) a slew of Brit motorcycles BSA`s, Triumph`s and a Norton in the 80`s to today. I still have and ride two Triumph`s and a BSA (project). So my ex-wife was right and that hasn`t changed over the years. So back in May I got the urge to own a British Roadster again, and now I have two, I bought the "Deerfield Special" as a winter project and while searching for parts on ebay for it, I found "The Indiana Special" described by the owner as "Drive it anywhere" so now you know the rest of the story…..as the adventure continues ! Cheers atknhbob

      Welcome and thanks for your car’s stories! I have a similar sickness when it comes to anything made in England-I even have a British made outboard motor…..
      There are quite a few club members near you-you just missed the United held last year in Maine. That was fun! Post some photos of your cars when you get a chance and if you have any questions just ask. Eric
