Dee & John Crawley
Location: Alberta, Canada
VIN: B382000221

I am John Crawley and a manager of Media Services at a large college that specializes in Technology. My background is in graphic arts and not in automotives. My interest in old English cars goes back to the restoration of a '49 Austin, at the age of 15. I presently own a '49 MGTC, a '63 MGB, a V–6 powered '58 Bug-eye Sprite and of course PRRROWL, my TIGER., I do not wish in any way to present myself as an automotive authority but only as an amateur restorer who has recently finished a TIGER..

I am preparing a description of my Tiger restoration activities, which I plan to share with the community. Hopefully these experiences will benefit others.

This picture was taken while Dee and I were on holiday, at the coast in Vancouver Island, BC, Canada . While this is a Mk IA Tiger, the observant browser may have detected a Mk II grill. More on this in my planned restoration article!
