More Speedfair pics

Two more pics taken by Sally Gowans.

A great reminder of the day and what it's all about really.

Unfortunately, it's the last time the TR will see action until well into 2008.

I have not been able to stop the overheating - basically, the coolant system is being pressurised, water is being pumped out of the expansion tank over about 60 or so miles and then the engine overheats.

Diagnosis - blown head gasket.

This has probably been caused during one of the times the car has got hot for other reasons and now the only solution is to take it off the road, surrender the tax and fix it. So that's what I am going to do but it won't go back on the road until it has a roll cage and full harnesses as well now.

The immediate future is taken care of by getting the Toledo service completed and then driving it to the Med!
