Tasmin VS Dragon

These are some pics of my 580 Tasmin (Ford 351) on Hwy129 (The Dragon, 318 turns in 11 miles in the moutains of Tennessee and North Carolina).










There are 2 British Car Shows in the area in the next couple of weeks.

Great shots - I go to Killboy's site on occasion to check out who's been there lately. Fun stuff!

I'll be in Townsend next weekend for their show; hope to see you.

By the way, how does the Tasmin compare to the Wedge in handling?

Well ride comfort would go to the triumph... Overall performance would go to the TVR. I have a upgraded suspension on each. I think the TVR is much harder car to drive but in a good way. Have you been to the townsend show before? What car is yours?

Been there several times. Took the TR3 when I had it, but last couple times have been in the TR8. This was at the show in New Orleans last month:

Great photos of the 280i. I'm sure you are enjoying it. I was hoping to be at the Townsend show this year but unfortunately I will have to miss it. Hopefully I'll be back next year and take a run at the dragon.

I hope that I am not the only TVR there....

Know how you feel. I've been to several shows that were Wedgeless, apart from mine!

Usually get lumped into a catch-all class; often including Lagondas, Morgans, etc.!

Well, you WOULD have been the only TVR there!

What a wet mess! Too bad. Even so, there was a fair turnout. Maybe next year...

I was there.... I drove up in my BMW 540i because my TVR has no top. But there was a primer gray 2500 mod. there. I was there for about 10 min. in the rain and then went back home.

Oh, yeah - that one was parked next to George Mason's yellow TR7. I was next to George.

Sorry we missed connecting.
