Was pulled out of a barn by my dad as the owner needed money to buy a house. Dad had it for many years and just drove it. Once he couldn’t drive it he told me to take it home. I’ve had it almost 30 years and it needed help - major oil leaks. Decided either fix it or sell it.

My TR3 has been in the family for nearly all its life. I remember as a little kid riding in it with my uncle when we would go visit them. It was a metallic plum purple at the time. Then as a pre-teen I had all but forgot about the car as my family was into hunting, fishing, boating and the great outdoors.

I bought this white 1967 TR4A in 1979 from a young lady in San Francisco who was selling it because she "was getting too many speeding tickets." I had been looking around since I'd moved to California for a TR4 to replace the one I had in college back in Ohio in the late 60s.

I wasn’t at all comfortable in the Healey, so-so about the MGC and wasn’t much impressed with the TR color on first look.  But each walk past the 250 while perusing other cars cemented the Valencia Blue as one of my favorite LBC colors.The test-drive and exhaust tone were awesome!  Results: a new favorite car with plenty of pep.

Tony told me that he became the third owner of the car in 1971. He used it every day. He briefly raced the car and he had the engine rebuilt in April of 1975 when the mileage was 62,830. Some body work done in the summer of 1976 and some major front end mechanical and paint work including sandblasting the frame in the summer of 1983.

We, along with tremendous support from family members, were re-planning our wedding just three days prior to the “big day.” Our venue and a number of our vendors found themselves without power, resources, or personnel.

l am finishing the third restoration on the car since I bought it.  I found it behind a gas station in January of 1971 as a derelict.  I had always wanted a TR-3 because as a kid, the neighbor behind us in our then new subdivision in Wisconsin had a red with black interior 1959 TR-3A as his only car.

In 2017, nearing retirement, I decided I wanted another TR3, to use as a "daily driver" with an eye towards restoration. After looking all summer, online as well as traveling to various states to check out prospects, I heard about one for sale that had been restored frame-off in 1987, but then mostly stored.

It has been my lifelong dream to own a TR3. Many years ago I passed up the opportunity to buy one and I have regretted it ever since. One thing that my Dad and I have always shared is the love of cars. If Dad saw a car he liked, he got it, much to Mom's chagrin.

His choice of silver and white interior leather colors lent to questioning his manliness. Once the car was back on the road and driving we decided to see how best we could embarrass him. The purchase of some magnetic funny signs let to the need for revenge. Who says red blooded Americans of Scottish decent don’t like kittens?

In the spring of 1973 my sister-in-law had a boyfriend with a blue TR3. We became friends working on his car. He convinced me to buy a TR. After a month of looking I found a signal red 1964 TR4 in a small farming community in central Texas. The owner of the 4 had retired from the railroad using the 4 as his daily drive.

The Triumph began as a basket case that my son found advertised as an unfinished project. The previous owner had the car for 9 years with little progress made.  The best we know, the owner before that had it for 8 or 10 years, building the engine and doing some high quality metal work on the body tub floor pans. It was (to the best of our knowledge, based on the documentation that came with the project……) last licensed in Illinois in 1983…..
