    New TR6 Owner.

    So I purchased a 71 TR6. I've been wanting a TR6 for a while now.

    I still own a 77 Vette (that is for sale) that helped with the sports car bug. However, the vette is much too smooth and refined. (seriously!) I wanted something more raw. I wanted a ragtop. I wanted a manual transmission.

    I had a 73 GT6 many years ago. The engine was frozen solid, and there was NO interior. I was attempting to restore it, but a move, and breakup, and other stuff forced me to sell it. That started the British car bug. It died down for a while, but its back!

    Right now, I'm having some transmission issues, but with your help, I should get it back on the road in a few weeks. I'm also replacing the old, tired seats with, get this, Jeep seats. I sure hope that works.

    Heres a pic of my new TR6:


    And one of my vette, that is for sale, because I've run out of garage space.

    Re: New TR6 Owner.

    Congratulations on your purchase. Always nice to see another Triumph owner join the forum. Especially a TR6 owner.

    Overall though you will find that this is a great all around forum with many friendly people. Even the non-Triumph owners can be friendly. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jester.gif[/img]

    Re: New TR6 Owner.

    Ah, the old corvette forum...I used to regular there back when I had mine, looks like a very nice car....not a bad price either around here that car would go for alot more...shame your a so far from me, if I didn't have to factor in shipping I'd definatly be interested....Good luck anyway, I am sure you wont have any difficulties selling.
