Enough of Martin's Commando. Thought we would have a gentleman's machine for a change. 1949 Sunbeam S8 - Mike Carruthers. Bought in big lumps, assembled for the start of last year's runs with 12v ac electrics, semi electronic ignition, may convert to full if I can find another distributor to play around with. Just fitted sump extension so it now holds an extra pint. Dual seat fitted as Linda is used to the comfort of BMW seats, but not over keen on the plungers though. Did around 800 miles last year. Seems to run quite well although does not handle very well descending steep hills in reverse!!
