Those must be self-powered Christmas lights of some kind. or are they solar-powered?

i think they're LED's on a battery pack, anon. pretty simple system.

Holy Hannah does it look good with those American Racing Vector wheels and black primer paint.

I've been hunting this thing around my hood for a while, it's the most elusive car around. I nearly caught it parked at the neighborhood bowling alley, now that would have been sweet! But probably not as sweet as this scene. The primer under that soft street light glow, perfect contrast for those tiny shiny bits. Bravo.

I've seen a few of these around, but this honest daily driven one is by far my favorite. Excellent wheels/tires/stance.

Didn't they use a Sunbeam Tiger in the opening scenes of Get Smart? I seem to recall Don
Adams getting out of one while the opening credits were rolling. There was a young man at
my highschool that had one of these powered by a 289 V-8 mated to a 4-speed toploader
tranny. After seeing this, I found out that this was indeed a factory conversion. Wish I had it
now, very few of these were built.

aaah, another tiger. first time I've seen vectors on one, usually they are wearing minilites or slots. I wonder if he is still runnin the original 260 or if he upgraded.

It's cool to see a DD on Special Interest plates. I've been considering doing this with my car to save a bit of money. I imagine the DMV is a bit more receptive to issuing them for a '66 Sunbeam, than an '87 Nissan, though. :(
