An old Triumph. So many people around, I was only able to get a couple full car shots without folks walking through.

Beautiful sports car. I remember them when they first came out. These little fastback Triumphs reminded me of Jaguar XKE coupe, in that they were of English manufacture, a fastback coupe with an inline 6 cylinder. They were a lot cheaper to buy than a new Jag.

I was in high school at their introduction and there was a Triumph dealer in my city. A buddy and I went to check them out after class and I really liked the looks of them. I'm a fairly large individual... about 6' 3" + and around 240 lbs. Then I was about the same height but not the same weight. I recall trying to get into the driver's seat, but try as I might I just couldn't fit. That has been the story of my life and one of the reasons I've usually bought large American sedans...as I fit comfortably in them.

My first car was a Spitfire Mk1. I have always had a soft spot for Triumphs. Nice shots.

Love the old British cars, especially the Triumphs like the TR-6. I miss my old MG Midget also , especially since I saw one just like it on the road today.

Thank you for your story of the Triumph. I like reading comments like these from the community here.

It must be a sign that you should find and buy one .

I didn't see any. Maybe the all liquids were removed before shipping .
