Neil Curtis 1969 TR6

I moved to Florida in 2006 and due to the good year round weather I bought my other automotive passion, a Harley-Davidson which I rode until 2017. My daughter and son-in-law in 2016 purchased a Ural motorcycle with a side car which they enjoyed until the day they were stopped waiting for traffic to make a left turn and were rear ended by a car doing 40 mph (they have both luckily recovered from their injuries.) Although, it did not bother me to continue riding, I realized that my wife and daughter would be forever traumatized by my continuing to ride, so the Harley was put up for sale. Well, I still needed to have an acceptable toy for my retirement years and my immediate thought was to return to my driving roots. My first car was and A-H Bugeye Sprite - # 2 was a mini - but then it was time for the military, then marriage and then a child so the toys were put on the back burner. After the accident I immediately bought a Hemmings to look for ideas that would fit my pocketbook and the TR6 looked as if it would fit all of my requirements. As it all turned out my Daughter in Massachusetts found my 69 Triumph TR6, Jasmine Yellow, with 38,000 + miles on the odometer a half hour from my home - went to see it (the owner had a garage I would die for) and we made a deal. So, I have had the TR6 for almost 2 years now, and yes, as it is with all 50 year old cars, it can be a bit of a money pit, but thankfully we enthusiasts have companies like Victoria British to supply us with whatever parts we may need. Where I live we have a monthly cruise-in and I can not believe the interest the car generates. I dive it at least once a week to keep everything functioning and I have met two other TR6 owners to commiserate with. So that's my story and I am sticking to it!!!!
