    New Addition

    '68 TR250 - 65000 original miles - original paint, interior and rust - last ran 1979. Last Triumph I owned was 1967, a TR4 I bought from a Jesuit priest at Fordham and the car I had when I met my wife . I plan on it being a family project for me, my son in law and grand kids. The 3 in the picture are the granddaughter - in the middle - and her best friends.

    Congrats on your purchase. I'm in the middle of restoring one

    Looks like a great project. I look forward to seeing some updates along the way.

    Cheers

    Yes the car was local to me. It came out of a garage in Ridgewood NJ. I meet the guy about a year ago while gasing up. A short conversation and I told him if he was looking to sell the car to let me know. A year later I got the call to my surprise. Not to disappoint but the grandkid is a Mets-Jets-Nets fan. They understand disappointment.

    You have to turn them before it's too late.

    Sorry, can't do that. They are following in my my foot steps. I started life as a Wille Mays, Joe Namath fan. I will say that growing up in NY in the 50s and 60s was magical. I was born in 1947 and was 12 before I realized the World Series wasn't always in NY. Mays, Mantle or Snider. For me its Mays always. Let the flames begin.

    BTW. I recognize your Healey also, a very nicely done car
