After parting with my Model A Ford, I found myself with an empty garage space. I started scanning the web looking for an entertaining replacement.  This TR6 showed up on eBay and it was local. I went to look it over on Saturday and drove it home on Monday.

Long story short, I got the car for a song as house was now for sale.  The previous owner had purchased  mega new parts, all suspension, windscreen etc.  I started putting it back together in April 2017.  Still perfecting it....but here is the before and now.

I bought my '72 TR6 in the spring of '93.  That year I was a senior in high school. My dad who was a British car enthusiast and the one who got me hooked on the little two-seaters, noticed it for sale along the side of a road.  The previous owner had done some body work and painted the car, but to my knowledge, no engine work.

The car lurched, clanked, sputtered, smoked and required the strength of the Hulk to turn the steering wheel or to put in the clutch.  It had the original red stripe tires, all of which were firmly hardened, except for the one that was flat the morning after I bought it.  On top of it all, it was painted a non-standard, peeling, obscene color of blue that does not exist in nature.

In early 1976, while I was in college, a friend asked me to ride with him to the car dealership to pick up his new car. He wanted me to follow him in his original car back to his home. His new car was a 1976 TR6. At that time I didn't even own one car much less two.

You know, none of us really own our cars. Most of us are just the doting curator of our one  exhibit museum. It’s because of our efforts, our waxing, our polishing and our meticulous maintenance that these cars live on. It’s because of us that they are still here to remind  onlookers  of their place in automotive history.

This picture was taken on 11/26/99, the day I got my car back from the body shop.  As you can see I don’t even have the TR6 stickers on the back yet.  I purchased my 1972 TR6 on 9/3/99 and immediately had the body completely gone over.  These are great cars to drive.

I built this car for touring and really enjoy both the open highway and the twisty Appalachian mountain roads. I like competing in autocross events and the occasional road course track days. It’s not a show car, but it doesn’t show badly. It has lots of character and always puts a smile on my face when I drive it.

In the fall of 1974 I began high school. One of my teachers had a very sharp, brand new, bright red sports car parked in the front row of the parking lot every day. It was a convertible, had a wooden dash, red stripe tires and had British flag decals on the rear quarters with "TR6" on them. I dreamt of having one of those cars two years later when I turned 16 and got my driver's license but there was no way my parents could afford to pay over $6000.00 for a teenager's first car.

Cars and baseball were the goalposts of my youth. Born and raised in the Motor City, I am the son of an autoworker, and every kid on my block was the same, except for the children of our neighborhood’s three dissenters, a police officer and two bread-truck drivers.

In late summer of 1984 I was a lanky 16 yr. old Indiana kid, just about to get my driver’s license. I spent much of that summer trying to reassemble my first car (a 1974 MG Midget). The previous fall at age 15, I managed to convince my parents that the Midget would be a perfect car for me to restore and learn on…not thinking I might soon grow an additional 4”

Just picked this up recently. Along with a bad paint job and a loss of attention to detail it should work out in the end to my benefit. The mechanics needed to repair a fuel delivery problem and ended hacking the fuel lines to replace them with rubber hose. Paint coming apart inside the air cleaner would eventually create another serious problem in the future.
