Some Tiger buff will grab that for, "Look what I have that you don't.. nah nah na nah nah". Memorabilia is big business.
The Tigers came with federally mandated equipment which the buyers were encouraged to remove, like ugly 5 mph bumpers at standard height. It was assumed Tiger buyers were going to club race, so lowering, changing engines and gears was encouraged. My brother bought a tiger with a 302 Ford engine but later found out somebody had rebadged an Alpine. The only sure way to tell is there is a little door in the Tiger trunk to access the battery under the passenger seat. In the Alpine you have to pull the seat.

I am no expert on the fine differences between the Tigers and the Alpines with V-8s,but, daaang. That is a LOT of gogogo for such a tiny car.

That's good.

I think you could improve it by drilling the hole for the steel pin through the side and putting the pin through on the horizontal. Then you don't have to grind the lower jaw at all, you just put the pliers on their side and engage the pin and pull. You can still use them as pliers, but have a pin sticking out the side so only one side will work.
