View Full Version : 50 today

22nd December 1959 at 11:45am my TR3 rolled off the production line. Having spent the first 32 years of its life in the USA it is now sitting in my garage in Scotland. Sadly the heavy snow and salty roads mean that it is having a quiet birthday.
I think my kids are getting a little old for singing "Happy Birthday"!!

Looks like your son has sprung an oil leak on his sweatshirt.......
Another LBC guy in the making.

That's cute. All I ever do is buy my cars gifts, which almost always are just replacements of stuff they already have, but due to their age, need new.

Great looking car but better lookin kids!
Must get over there some day as my Mom's family (Scotts) aren't too far away in the border lower uppers. The clan had a big meet in 09 but couldn't make it. Haven't been to the Isles since '78.
Happy Bday to your '59

Happy Birthday, Nicks car.

I love your paint combination, another simple case of black and white.

Nice picture. Glad to see that the kids are into the car thing. We need another knowledgeable generation to pass these on to.
