Rare cars make a pit stop in La Crosse

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW) – The Tiger and Alpine East Club brought more than 40 cars to Copeland Park on Saturday.

The Tiger and Alpine are both a rarity in the car world. Fewer than 7,000 Tigers were built and around 70,000 Alpines were made throughout the 1960’s.

The location for the event changes each year, usually traveling to a different region of the country, and today La Crosse got the opportunity to host the event.

The cars were judged based on how well they run and look.

It’s put on by an international club for enthusiasts of rootes group vehicles. The cars bring them together, but it’s the people that bring everyone back each year.

“You won’t see a bigger gathering of these cars ever and you know, you get involved with the club, it’s a very social thing, you see people, it’s a big social event we do every year,” said club president Joe Parlanti.

If you weren’t able to see the cars today, they will be Autocross racing on Sunday at 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Winona Area Technical School.
