Sunbeam Talbot Alpine Register
If you own one of these cars, it is almost imperative that you become a member of The Sunbeam Talbot Alpine Register, or S.T.A.R. for short. This is a British organization with many regional sections throughout the U.K. and overseas. They publish an excellent magazine called STARDUST every second month containing information on club activities, interesting articles about these cars as well as advertising from various businesses catering to this breed.
