    Damn, I thought I was the only one left alive .who knew what a TR-3B was . I had a red one from 66-67. Got married, sold it and drove wife's 66 Mustang.( 6 cylinder / auto. )
    The Triumph was another one of those fun car that was a pain to own. No syncros in first gear, snap on top, leaked when it rained, jack was a joke, couldn't get parts, lousy dealer. But it sure was fun!!

    No, it's a daily driver and weekend mountain road toy. I've done a couple of track days, one at Carolina Motorsports Park and one at Virginia International Raceway, and I'd love to do more, but too expensive to do routinely.

    68 Camaro I paid $400 for from the auto hobby shop on base, sans engine. It took me a weekend to do a transplant 305 into it to get it running, but then became a big block transplant.
