    Got a pair just like that. I will have to take better care to lock them up if they are worth that much.

    I have never seen these things, but have seen similar on some pre-war cars. Certainly not for my tr250, but what do you think about these for a side curtain TR, cool or clunky? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-of-Tri....c100033.m2042

    So I decided to give this a "look, see" for a laugh and then received the e-mail below. Anyone else take a "look, see" at this and get a similar e-mail?

    It is! Standard cracks around the rear mounting hole, but remarkably free of rust. I would place it mid to late TR3/3A, both because of the shape and the contrasting piping.

    I see how it would mount in place of the stock center light...but beyond that I don’t get it.

    Re: Ebay of the Day

    Looks like it bolts onto the plate holes on the spare tire door. Problem is you then need to fill the holes for the plate light, which you've removed, and unplug the wires, which are now in the tire door, whenever you take the door off. Not really a better mouse trap. By the way, check out all the mousetraps available at your local hardware lately.

    Re: Ebay of the Day

    I cannot figure it out either; one thought I had was it might even go in the front because when I look at the tie wirer on the license plate itself, it is not connected. The plate is just sitting there, so the whole plate could slide down and expose more of the light and bolt to the front bumper then wire up. Really, that is what gets me is the way the light looks Lucus English, adjustable, and stock. My first thoughts were home made, but now I am not sure. Maybe I should call Piggot and ask. Perhaps it fits European cars from the period that need a place to mount a license plate. I need to buy it and flip it.

    What did it go for? If that was described as good condition I would hate to see poor condition.

    I am at the beach this week and I would not hear the end of "Why can't you finish one before you start the second"

    $1025. It was worth that in parts easy but I had everything needed to complete it. Even a good vin plate and title. would have cost me me almost that much to have picked up and delivered. Have enough projects to keep me busy so I didn't try that hard.

    I watched the clock tick to 0 while trying to come up with a way to rationalize it to my wife -who didn't like the idea of her car going back outside the garage for 'awhile'.
    Then I went back to and finished my copy of 'the last open road'. Upon finishing, I had to remember the book was supposedly written in 1952, and that's why it never mentioned Triumphs or TRs, but lots of MGs and Jags. -It staggers the mind imagining a time before TRs.
