The home of world class bodging.
In my youth I've owned a few Triumphs...(my very first car being a Daimler V8 - which a tree fell on - I know a likely story...)
My first Triumph was a Mk1 GT6 - No pictures of that I'm afraid - I never did get it on the road...(sorry Colin), what a pile of crap those Mk1 GT6's are - the rear suspension is a bloody accident waiting to happen.
The next was a white TR7 - and I've a bit of a soft spot for them (daft I know)
Then came the car the wife (to be, at the time) learnt to drive in (way back in 86)
Note the original TR and 1850 Dolly in background
Then along came a few wrecks which needed a rebuild or two
And so back to a TR - or in fact a Grinnall V8 which was originally white, and was rotten - oh how I remember setting light to myself welding the floor pan up - oh happy days
Then I got another TR7 which my mate cooked the engine - so a V8 conversion was afoot The wife wanted a grey one...so I painted this one red as well!!!
And so - (amongst these Triumph's I must add were a few obligatory Mini's, Fiesta's, Cortina's, Capris, Granada's, Golfs, Shovits, Hondas, Monza, Starion...hmmm the list does go on a bit)
Then BM's - first a 525i, then a couple of M535i's (still like those...) and so to 'baby bets' (all the cars end up being a Betsy)
A 318i (hence the baby) and the longest we have ever owned a car - owned since 1997. After the Dolomite's are sorted she gets a proper engine, an M5 lump!
Then the misses got a nice new Z3 2.8 - Our very first new car. And it was a nice car - but I stuffed it in a ditch at only nine months old!
At least the misses is still talking to me.
And so a house move, and then we were looking for a track day car - a nice M3 - stuff that - we got a Dolomite - a pooey one!
Another option for a track day car was a Spitfire or GT6 with a Sprint engine like this I've always wanted to do one of those since we saw one at Brands, and one at Prescott.
A chap has a lovely looking Spitfire, with a Sprint engine, no less, is MegaSquirting it...the lucky chap.
And another lovely GT6
