'63 Sunbeam Alpine S2
Owner: Amy Miller
Location: West Hills, CA
VIN: ????

Amy Miller, blonde California Surfer Gal, is seen here catching some rays with her daughter, Hilary. Amy has been fond of Sunbeams since she was Hilary's age and her father (Steve Laifman) owned one. She was very envious that her brother, Jay Laifman, acquired the car, but is now happy with her own vintage California car he obtained for her.

In the event that this particularly equipped S2 with wire wheels looks familiar, you have seen James Bond (Sean Connery) driving one in the first Bond movie, "Dr. No"

The car is 100% stock and has the original wire wheels and aluminum hardtop. Daughter Hilary is becoming possesive over the car, much to her brother Benjamin's dismay. Is history repeating itself?

So, why so much interest over LBC's (Little British Cars) in one family? Nature, or Nurture?

Here is a picture, taken many years before, that may shed some light on the subject. That is Amy, and her brother, about to fight over the car in the background. Brother and Sister in conflict over car? What future repercussions could this foreshadow? Want to read more? See "My (Life with) Cars"
