We reached out to the renowned administer of the Official Tiger Registry Norm Miller (who knows this particular car) first with a telephone conversation, nd followed up with a letter (which is included with the car) from Mr. Miller. He researched and verified the original JAL and has verified that this car is indeed a genuine Tiger.
