News: Meet The Owner - John Fisher's 1966 Austin Mini Convertible

When the Mini collector John Fisher takes his Tweed Grey 1966 Austin Convertible for a spin he often encounters one of the following questions - ‘did you cut the roof off it yourself?’ or ‘why hasn’t it fallen in half?’ To which the answer is always, the work was undertaken by Crayford of Westerham in Kent - and their standards were renowned in the UK and overseas.

Our first club of the month for 2018 goes to Triumph Sports Six Club (TSSC), which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year! Based at its Leicestershire Headquarters and Museum, the TSSC aims to provide all Triumph enthusiasts the very best help and support with their Triumph.

News: CELEBRATING THE TRIUMPH DOLOMITE

There is something purposeful about a Dolomite; the quad headlamps, the slightly aggressive stance and the wooden veneered dashboard with its ‘All Systems Go’ warning lamp cluster.

News: Tessa the Triumph - Rob Johnson

At this year’s Restoration show, we had two classic beauties on our stand; the first was our prize giveaway Golf GTI and the second was courtesy of our friends at Kelsey Media - a Triumph 2500TC.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER THE TRIUMPH MAYFLOWER?

I suspect that for many people their first glimpse of the Triumph Mayflower was not in the metal but in late night re-runs of the 1970 film version of Loot.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER – THE TRIUMPH TOLEDO?

It is almost inevitably the case with cars that belong to an elaborate hierarchy that the most expensive versions are the ones that capture the public imagination; the Hillman Avenger Tiger, the Ford Escort RS1600 and RS2000 Mk. I and the Dolomite Sprint.

News: Ian Creese's Apache - The Austin from South Africa

‘I’ve had people ask me “have you cut and welded three cars, because the front looks like an Allegro, the rear looks like a Triumph and the middle section is from an Austin 1300?”’. Ian Creese is used to such comments, as on 4th July 2016 he acquired a version of the ADO16 that was never marketed in the UK – the Austin Apache.

News: Meet the owner - James Ross Sinclair and his Volvo 343

For many years, James Ross Sinclair craved a Volvo 343 and so XRU 557Y recently joined his Triumph 2000 Mk. II and his Renault 10. ‘I have an odd almost unexplainable liking for them.

If you watch virtually any British police drama of the 1970s, you might have the idea that every vehicle that was not a Flying Squad Ford Consul GT was a Rover P6B or a Triumph 2.5 PI Mk. II. However, one vehicle that was equally associated with law enforcement was the BLMC ADO16 Panda Car.

The TR4 is, in my ever so humble opinion, an exceptionally handsome motor car; purposeful, commanding even, and beautifully proportioned. The coachwork blends the ruggedness of the previous TRs with such refinements as winding windows that 1961vintage sporting motorists were already starting to crave.

There are some cars whose line-ups make the plot of the average Alfred Hitchcock film appear comparatively straightforward, and the W114/W115 range belongs in this elite category along with the Citroën DS and the Triumph 1300/1500/Toledo/Dolomite.

News: Nice Cars - Shame About The Film

There is a select group of British films in which the viewer thinks a) what great cars b) the poor cast and c) I have just wasted at least 70 minutes of my life on this utter tripe.
