    Great TR3 story in Moss Motoring

    I'm not positive but I think one of our members is the author of a great story in Moss Motoring magazine. TK or Texasknucklehead stand up and take a bow. I remember your post when you did the trip, I loved the picture of the car in the old barn back in PA. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Specially enjoyed the closing lines of the article. " When I show up in a modern car (like a TR6), I have 'arrived', but when I show up in a TR3, I have once again 'cheated death' by embracing life. Nothing drives like a TR3."

    Good story Jerry and a real labor of love, and I also think there is something special about the TR3's.

    ...my copy showed up today. I haven't read the rest of the stories.
    Thanks.
    The picture of Butter by the wood burning shed was actually taken in Cumberland, Tennessee at my brother-in-laws house -it was the only 'bed and breakfast" on our trip.

    The "arrived/cheated death" is actually a quote from Geo. -I credited him in my submitted copy, but some things get edited. -usually for the better. But I think that cheating death is a great way to describe arriving in a TR3. "I have arrived!"

    Thanks, I enjoyed writing/seeing it printed.

    Thanks for the attempt at a credit -- I am willing to concede that 'cheated death' vis a vis 'driving a TR3' is now in the public domain.
