This is “Tiger” my 1975 Triumph TR6.

I’m the 5th owner.

Located in Douglas, MA.

 I’ve wanted a TR6 since I graduated high school in 1977.

Finally picked her up about 6 months ago.

LIVING THE DREAM!

I adopted her in November 2006 - I am the first & only owner.  Sense then we have traveled a bit & had countless days of fun.  I grew up a Lotus kid - my parents auto-x a Lotus 7, Elan & Cortina.  Buying this little one was my first true step into the wonderful world Chapman built.

Re: Show us your British cars

1970 MGB

This is the first car I ever bought, before I had a license. It was a rolling body, some interior and two engines in boxes. Through some friends of my parents my brother and I put a motor together, and fired it up.

 

Rod through the block. Whoops.

 

Put together the second motor and that is still what is in the car.

 

21 years later and I still drive it as often as I can. There is always a list of fixes and improvements and it was never a proper restoration but it nearly always gets me where I need/want to go and back again.

 

'70 was the only year with a split rear bumper, and my car has the 4spd with over drive in 3rd and 4th.

This is my '74 TR6.  I have owned it for about 14 years having bought it out of Arizona.  It now resides in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada.  It's not the original paint (you can see that the BL badges are in the wrong location.  Who cares!  Very therapeutic to drive on a warm summer evening.

‘87 Caterham Super 7 with a hotrodded Ford Kent 1600. This treasured car was a birthday gift a few years ago from my beautiful and talented wife.

We have enjoyed many miles of smiles since then - through sunshine, rain, and one fateful morning even sliding down the mountain during an unseasonable snow storm.

Best mountain car ever, but you have to pack carefully if you’re planning to be gone for more than two days in this most ‘practical’ of British cars.

Unfortunately, this stay-at-home season has not been the best for driving adventures...  

Always wear your PPE!

I completed the restoration of my 1948 MG TC in March and planned to show the car this spring and summer when COVID-19 changed those plans. This virtual car show is the next best thing. IMG_E0801 (2).JPGIMG_1115.jpgIMG_1116.jpgIMG_1117.jpg
