A Triumph 5-Speed Conversion Story

A Drive Through the Desert It started out as many driving adventures have – subject to precious little deliberation but with an ambitious goal to use a British sports car as regular transportation to get from one point to another just like occurred on a regular basis ‘back in the day.’ In this case, the…

Gang Triumph

In the corner of a building in an industrial complex sit the collected pieces of a rough and rusted 1971 Triumph TR6. The engine is out, doors and panels are off and an inspection of the frame would cause you to cringe. To those who know what they’re looking at, the car is scrap-worthy. But…

Driven – 1968 Triumph TR250

Despite the success of the Triumph TR4 and TR4A in sales and competition, as the end of the 60s approached it was clear that the company had to improve its performance with the introduction of a new engine that could offer not only greater horsepower, but also smoother operation than the relatively rough and noisy…

The Phoenix Rises

We started the restoration of Linda Allen’s 1970 TR6 in 2011. She bought this car new in Meridian, Mississippi, off the showroom floor for $3,625 in June of 1970.

For four years, my manly mallard-hued motor was a ready companion, never failing to start, never failing to run, never…

Almost Famous – Triumph TR5 Ginevra

For Triumph enthusiasts, words cannot properly describe the singular importance of Giovanni Michelotti to the success and survival of the company in the Sixties and Seventies.

Match Made in Heaven

My Dad came with me when I purchased my first car. It was a 1967 Mustang that I couldn’t wait to trade for my 1966 Spitfire. Later I sold the Spitfire to my Cousin John Riley and told him he had to whack the wheel caps with this rubber mallet that I provided to keep…

Thanks for the Adventures!

Just some quick items from my driving adventures for the Moss Motoring Challenge: Driving south toward Tooele, top down, i heard a horn beep behind me, and as I looked left saw a Porsche Carerra, also top down, with the driver’s thumb in the air.  As he zipped by, I noticed his license plate:  AVAST!…
