Default 1965 Sunbeam Tiger

My dad just finished up his Tiger, got a few pictures of it down by the harbor.

Beautiful car!

I like the photo too, it's technically perfect, maybe a bit dark...

I think the background is too distracting in the last image I posted

Might have to re-shoot and try that now that I have learned some more, I'm still getting used to using an SLR camera.

That car must be a blast to drive. I have loved those since my high school years.

Tell dad it looks like he did a great job. Your pics prove it.

Thanks to both of you.

#1: The light on it is good, but a bit more room at the front would be nice.
I thought those were a GREAT idea when they came out. He did a fine job on it!
