It's been and still is a lovely day in the UK today, so I went out in the TR.

Here's a view across the River Severn in Gloucestershire:

Ash-

Color me green with envy. Our drought is officially over in Texas, at least in my area. Rain the past week, and more to come the next. The sun will hopefully be out by April.

Cheers

That's a *great* picture of a *great* car.

Could you tell us more about the rear-view mirror on the windscreen frame?

Thanks.

Here's a link to Tim Hodgekiss who sells lots of Brit vintage accessories if you can't get the same mirror over there. He's a nice bloke and helpful.

I took the picture today and this one as well with the Church opposite. In WW2 they tried to build a floating bridge across the river here, but the tide trashed it. When I was a kid, some of the hexagonal metal floats were still lying around.

I love to see pictures of other people's so posted mine to encourage more.

Ash - you can find a *lot* of Triumph pictures in the Gallery:

Here's mine, taken in the early autumn here in Connecticut:

(but I think I'd prefer Gloucestershire)

Here'a photo of Ash and me last July in his driveway in Gloustershire. That was the trip where I drove TS2, the 2nd TR2 ever built a total of 2088 miles in 23 days with the top and sidecurtains stowed in the boot for the last 17 days.
