My dad had one when I was a kid. I've been eyeing a TR4 that's prepped for vintage racing that's for sale near me. It's been hard not to borrow tow it home and tell me wife it was a stray and ask if I can keep it if clean up after it's oil leaks.
I thought went that you can't be a true petrol head until you've owned an Alfa Romeo? Well Clarkson says so anyway. Personally I'd have Jag or an Aston Martin any old day of the week. Number one dream car is a 2004 Aston Martin DB9 in frosty blue. MmmmmmmmEveryone should own a Brit car or two sometime in their life.
Nice TR3, but it needs some patina.
Something about that car just screams "come on! lets go! gogogogogo!". I'd love to give it a go for a few laps.View attachment 221935
I saw this Triumph at a really cool automotive museum. I fell in love. The shop mechanic/detailer had it in the garage making sure that everything was in order and cleaning it back up. It had enjoyed a track day the day before.
It didn't happen unless there are pictures! Least you can do is give us a snap of the MG badge on your bench.I worked at a shop 20 years ago in Illinois that specialized in British vehicles. I still have the MG badge on my work bench from the first car I was tasked with dismantling for parts.
I like the TR3 as well as the MGA. Great lines on those cars. We also had a Sunbeam Tiger roll through the shop at one point.
Our main attraction was a kit car we were distributors for called a Birkin. It is a Lotus Super 7 replica. Fun times!
Man I see that and the first thing I wonder is if it runs at all... or even has an engine! Gorgeous though... no doubt.Perfect patina. They are only original once. As time goes by I find original means more to me than it used to.
