2 TR7 rally cars

The blue TR7 was my spares car but now belongs to Bryce who is picking up a TR7V8 tomorrow too!

The TR7V8 will donate it's running gear to the blue one in this pic as he intends building a TR7V8 rally car!

One day we hope both of the cars in this picture will be seen on rallys together - wow that should be cool.

Well, I had to start sometime

It's been 5 months since the last time the TR was used in anger and since then the overheating problem has been diagnosed as a blown headgasket.

Ho-hum - I suppose it's time to start doing something about it.

Well' it's a start anyway - strut brace off, battery out the way, cam cover off, spark plug tubes out and the sprocket pulled off the end of the cam.

It might be a while before I do more but at least I have started.

Thanks mate

My mate Paul Darbyshire gave me a ring and asked if I'd like to join him in visiting the Autojumble at Newark. That was really good of him as he remembered I was no longer allowed to drive.

So thanks Paul - we had a very good day, the sun shone, I bought a few bits and pieces and also visited the air museum which was rather good.

Lucky to live here

Already posted on the Club Triumph forum but deserving of a possibly wider audience (who knows?).

These are photos taken by Deana on her camera phone whilst on the way to work.

Need I say more?
