Triumphs in use

Whilst visitng Newcastle for the day we saw an automatic Stag parked up and a Spitfire in motion amongst all the rest of the traffic in the city centre. I think that David Pearson prognosis may be right.

No trailer

My plans to pick up the 2000 will have to wait. Seems lots of cars are being moved this weekend.

2000 opportunity

I know of a 2000 saloon in the vale of Belvoir that is available for breaking are you interested?

Last MOT'd 2002 then driven for a year.

I would like the gearbox/overdrive you can have the rest if you can help me retrieve it.
Problem is nobody will hire me a trailer when I turn up in my Vitesse.

I have plenty of space at my place to break it up here in Newark!

The Karl Dandridge Triumph the link on the left of my blog was not working. I have fixed now. Give it a go.

Meet up with Karl at the TSSC national today. A very professional looking stand. Even the sweets were colour co-ordinated.

Sounds like he will using his racing experience to bring some interesting stuff to the market soon for us street car drivers. I will be watching out for more news!

Stafford 2006

I visted the TSSC national at Stafford. It seemed a little quieter than usual. It was good to meet up with some old friends from my days in the West Midlands. One of those chaps Chris Allen was running the Dinky concourse. That chap must have every AA model ever issued. If you get the chance check his collection out.

Two ex John Kipping/Canley blokes were trading there. Mike Papworth who sorted my gearbox recently and Karl Dandridge.

There were some bargains to had in the autojumble. I looked at several cars running PI and got some more ideas.

This is a electronic PI set up on a GT6.

I have saved some more pictures to

Also picked up a spare petrol tank from Debbie AKA targopurple which I bought off eBay recently. A nice change to actually meet an Ebay trader. Will be able to play with this one to get the PI plumbing sorted.
