     I would like to know more about this Tiger...Before my
uncke,"sonny"vorholdt died, he had a MkII tiger. It was BRG color at the
time..After he died, the car was shipped to mid Texas, stayed in a backyard
for years(rusting to the ground, I heard), and then was bought and I lost
track of it..It would have made a fine racer rebuild..All of this took place
in the mid 80's. His car had had a fire in the fuel pump area(yep, put it out
with a wet tee shirt. Just wondering about this racer.

While discussing tigers for sale, I ran across this one on Craigslist the
other day...He says it's a mkII....so it would have to be an extremely early
mkII right? I have never seen a mkII from 66, but TU production data states
that MkII's began production in 12/66...but was that just the prototypes? And
it doesn't have the correct headlight rings for a mkII I think...but it's a
bid hard to tell.....Anyway....if it is an early mkII, it sure seems like a
good deal. Im not in the market or in the vicinity, otherwise I would at
be checking it out...you can follow the link at the bottom to go directly to
the ad as well.....
