View Full Version : Wedge Is my TR7 Jealous?

Well... I went Saturday morning and released my TR7 from its winter hibernation. Took a little encouragement to get going and started to wear down the battery. Hooked up the Explorer to it and away she went. I let it idle for about 10 minutes or so. Meanwhile, I also brought out the '71 mgb out of there, rolled it out of the barn, put it right beside the Triumph and tried to start it. Well.. the fuel pump started pumping the gas, I opened up the choke by hand... approximatly 40 seconds of cranking.. away it went. An MG and a Triumph running side by side. What a great feeling /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
I parked the MG in the garage beside the GT on Saturday and drove the Triumph for about 15 minutes or so, then had to take it home. Went out this morning, barely touched the key and it started right up. I don't think it even went one revolution. I went and put a tank of premium gas in, as I do the first time of the year and went for a 100 km run. Had it on the highway, got up to 130kph and back home.
This is the thing... The car has never idled so nicely, such nice pickup, it ran just wonderfully.
Is it possible that it has seen the two MG's in the garage and knows the thought of selling it might come to mind?

I hope it keeps thinking that the rest of the summer. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

How many MG's do you think it would take to make my TR6 change color?

Yeah, but would you ever REALLY consider selling it? Or are you just toying with it's affections?
