We're fans of the little Sunbeam, and we see quite a few at cruise nights and the occasional autocross. It has been ages, however, since we've seen one tackle the 1,320, especially with such fervor as Jerry Porsen's super-clean '66 Tiger in WFC's Wild Street class. Jerry, of Rio Rancho, New Mexico, stuffed a 347ci powerhouse under the bonnet of the little Tiger, which gives the lightweight British bullet typical times in the low 10s at 130 mph. (Man, we can't wait to take our Factory Five Roadster project to the strip.) Jerry put up a valiant effort, but he went out in the second round.
