Greetings Gardener !!

Welcome to the sometimes wacky but always friendly
world of the BCF Triumph guys.

I'm looking forward to seeing a real TR6 and
meeting you as well. It is a bit of a BCF tradition
to drink a cold one at the Biker bar outside of Dorado.
What will the poor Bikers think when they see two of us?

regards,

d

Dale,

Dale,

Why is your hood unlatched in this picture?

And why doesn't poor Wendy ever get to drive?????

<span style="color: #990000">The hood is latched but still Pedro-ized.
I replaced all the latch components with new after this photo
was taken. </span>

Wendy's feet do not reach the pedals. But the gal in the
photo is Wendy's tall friend Lucy, who drove a TR4 for
many years. Lucy enjoyed her drive of the Crypt Car.

PS Gardener- I've been quoted $15,000. to paint my red car
the same color red. If you find a decent shop that will charge
less than $15,000. to change the paint color of your car, please let me know.

regards,

dale

Welcome Gardner.
These cars though sometimes frustrating are worlds of fun. I think the frustration can sweeten the fun. You will find lots of help here and you have a great neighbor.
Enjoy!

Dale,

This may be a dumb question, but why in the world do you want to have your car repainted? It looks great.

Hello Gardner,

"Welcome" to the "BCF" from the Pocono Mtns of PA.

Just a word of caution. Don`t let your TR get too close to Dales TR6. Something just may rub-off &amp; you won`t like it.

Have Fun Anyways,

Russ

Welcome Gardener!

Now there's at least two shiny red TR6s in PR!

Say, how did Miracle run and drive when you checked it out back before you bought it? Any problems?

Gardener,
Welcome to the BCF from a neighbor of Dorney Park. I am old enough to remember when they had deer pens there, and Hurricane Hazel knocked down the fences. I saw a deer go by our house on the front sidewalk followed by an Allentown Police Car awaiting the game warden with tranquilizer darts.

Glad to see there is now someone to keep Dale under control. Enjoy your new ride. It will be fun to learn of the times you two get to travel together.

<span style="color: #660000">Dorney Park! What fond memories from childhood.
My grand parents would take us there for a wonderful day. I well
remember the scary and noisy wooden roller coaster. Probably
torn down decades ago. I did not know the park was still open.

d</span>

Edit: I think Gardener has owned several Triumphs prior to this one.
I am hoping he will be able to help this non-mechanic guy (me) get
my TR6 sorted out so it is reliable transportation.

Back in the day, I hit a deer with my TR3. I was cooking it pretty good and came around a curve and the thing was standing in the middle of the road. I locked it up and was going to go around behind it and it decided to change direction. I hit it broad side. All I could see was it coming up over the hood. For some reason that didn't happen and it folded the whole front end down. Very lucky it was only sheet metal that got hurt. Of course the deer didn't fair so well.

Dorney Park (https://www.dorneypark.com/) still has the wooden ThunderHawk, although there are lots of larger coasters there now as well. It is no longer the cool no admission park of my youth, but now a major destination owned by Cedar Fair which also owns Cedar Point in Sandusky OH, and Valley Fair near Minneapolis.

AH!! I remember CB - "breaker one nine, breaker one nine, good buddy,
catcha on the flip flop, look out for smokie at exit #6;
that's a big ten four, darn this double nickle!!"

Yup, El Caracol - food is terrible but the beer is cold and
the ocean view stunning.

Soon there will be two red TR6 parked with the bikers!!
