Vito L 1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mk II 2dr Convertible

Mother's Day Drive

Dear Hagerty Insurance:

One of my favorite experiences in a classic car was the day that they released the movie "Get Smart", and Get Smart was driving a Sunbeam Tiger.

We had taken our Tiger out for a Mother's Day ride, not being aware that the movie was being released, and that the Commercials on TV had been showing the Tiger. We went for lovely drive to Sausalito, and as we are driving it was if we were celebrities! Cameras were coming out everywhere. People wanted to talk about the car! As we got back on the freeway after a beautiful luncheon, this Limousine drives up beside us and this 12 inch camera lens comes out of the car and snaps a picture of us! The camera then quickly goes back inside the car, and we never even knew who took our picture! For this one moment in time... we were celebrities! A fabulous Mother's Day/Classis Car ride that we will always remember and treasure.
