good shot hans // i have always wanted to try uk roadster with detroit power // this is good as it gets
Great to hear that he uses these fantastic classics–I have always believed like Hans that they were ment to be driven and its what I do with mine. I was fortunate to drive a 66 Tiger in competition in 66 and started my rally career in a 1962 544 Volvo in 63 so appreciate a rally preped 123 GT both were fantastic cars and I miss the 544 to this day and am envious of Hans that he has the Tiger to thunder thru the country side in and last but not least a rally preped MGB would be a… Read more »
Thanks to Hans & Petrolicious
I fully expect to be offered a ride soon…
Another brilliant Petrolicious video! However, I must make note that when Chrysler bought Roots Group, it was not the huge 426 hemi that they had a problem stuffing into the Sunbeam, it was the small block 273, also with the distributor at the rear of the engine. Great cars Hans, that make beautiful noises.
Very nice Hans!
It can be a tough argument as to whether or not to drive your classic car(s) regularly and face the consequence of inevitable abrasion from the road. For those who do, I really admire their bravery for enjoying the cars for what they are crafted for. Those who “collect” cars I can understand as well. People value their possessions in different ways. I gotta say, Hans has truly deterred me from embracing a car that’s stuck in a garage and rarely gets to breath and stretch its legs. If in the future, I ever get to own an Alfa 105,… Read more »
Hear hear Beck, the real experience is to drive them. One of mine is sitting out my window in the rain. It is very water proof, has chips and cracks in the paint, nicks in the trim and a couple chips in the windshield. It also has an LSD, good tires and is a blast to drive in the rain if the occasion requires it. If you don’t drive them you are missing the full experience. And if you can afford to drop big coin for a vintage Ferrari, then you should be able to afford to drive it also.… Read more »
Another great video to showcase a nice diverse collection.
Another great story! Those roads look like they are in the Lime Rock area. I’ve driven them many times. Living in Florida that is the one thing I miss, winding roads. Keep up the great work.
Brilliant video once again. I can feel the passion leaping out of the screen at me. As a proud owner of a 1969 MGB GT and growing up in Abingdon (UK) it was great to see such an accurate rally rep being used and enjoyed! Thanks for sharing Hans.
I’ve had the pleasure of going on car adventures with Hans, and am amazed that this incredible video was able to capture the spirit and passion of his love for cars. His research and level of knowledge, his attention to detail and execution are an inspiration. His cars are driven and enjoyed, as they were meant to be. And the cars are fantastic!! I’ve watched the video three times just to hear the incredible exhaust music!!
My grandfather had a Tiger back in the late 60’s that he drove to and from work everyday. It didn’t see that lively of a time, but he loved it for the time he had it.
It didn’t see a great end, though. Driving home on the highway at night, he lucked out and didn’t die when truck ran into him head-on. He went on to own several Datsun Z cars, but always said his Sunbeam was his favorite.
Very cool Hans!
The Sunbeam sounds epic. Really is a Cobra for a 10th of the money.
I didn’t think the videos could get any better but you have out done yourself this time. We got to see three cars in one episode!. I think Im having a hard time choosing which one i like the most. Every car is a bit different and unique then the last one. I must say though i have always loved the Sunbeam tiger. I got to see one at the annual Hershey car show and it was amazing to see how they could fit such a engine into that car. Hearing that Tiger gave me goosebumps!
That Sunbeam! What a riot and what a sound!
I so love these videos, they are so well done and offer a romantic way of looking at out hobby. Hardest part is waiting for the next video to come out.;)
