I agree.? When we authenticate Tigers we see some pretty bizarre issues and
like you I find it amazing?when we mention Sunbeam Specialties or Classic
Sunbeams?that they're unknown.? But it is also surprising that there are
adults today that don't know about Google searches to find such resources.?I
feel quite blessed to have been exposed to?personal computers and tthe
internet in my lifetime. Not everyone has been so fortunate.

I appreciate the shop might do good quality work, and i do take your
point about what happens when a sunbeam goes to a good
trimmer/restorer etc and they dont have a knowledge of the cars so
either replicate the errors/incorrect parts on the car or adlib if
there is nothing to follow.... what i dont get is how people in the
USA dont know about Sunbeam Specialties or Classic Sunbeam. They are
on the internet, they are in hemmings and they are widely known
amoungst sunbeam comminities... how disinterested in the car must you
be to not be able to find these suppliers... ?
