     I never thought I would own one. I am a purist in the strictest since.
     But last night, I was rummaging through the classified ads and saw a
     Sunbeam Alpine for $500. After talking to the guy for a few minutes,
     he told me that the original engine had been taken out and a Capri V6
     had been dropped in. The car has been hit in the right front, but runs
     well... I bought it!
     I am planning on picking it up on Saturday. I don't know whether the
     fender can be beat out. It is pretty badly damaged. I am strongly
     considering taking it to the body shop and let them work their
     wonders. I don't know the specifics on the engine and trans yet, but
     after I get it home, I'll find out.
     What can you tell me about the Capri? Does anyone have a right side
     front fender for a Series V if I need it? I would like to get this
     road worthy as soon as possible and put the III in the shop for a LONG
     overdue complete restoration.
     So lets see, I have 3 Sunbeams now, my brother has one and my dad has
     Gary, I still want those parts.

     Alpine V Probably going to be Dad's project.
