I have always loved quirky little cars. Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Carlisle, PA surrounded by muscle cars, I have loved the little British cars. Sprites, Spitfires, MGs and my favorite was the Triumph TR7. Over the years I was never able to buy one until recently.

Here is a photo of my 1976 Triumph TR7. I bought this car in June of 1979, the summer before my senior year in High School. The last time the car was in operation was in 1985. The car was kept in my garage and covered until now. Over the past two years I restored the car for operation.

Jack Russell knows full-well that his car doesn’t like his wife. Mainly because it absolutely refuses to let her start the engine! Time after time he’s taken the trouble to show her just how to insert and turn the key. Time after time the engine resolutely refuses to fire – she just can’t do it!!

In 1965, I had a 1957 MGA roadster I bought my senior year of high school. I had worked mechanically on the car and had it running fairly well, but the exterior and seats were really tired. Upon high school graduation, I went on active duty in the Army reserve and while in basic training unbeknownst to me, my dad, not a car nut or a man known for showing his feelings, had my car painted...

I am not a purest. She started out as a mild mannered TR7 and morphed into what she is today. She has a Buick 231 cid V-6, the 5 speed is from a Camaro, and the rear end is from a Mustang GT. The suspension uses Koni shocks, competition springs and poly bushings.

I bought this TR7 off the original owner about four or five years ago. It had been a daily driver in Edmonton (6.5 hours North), the car had been well maintained. However, the salted winter city streets had taken their toll on the body and it looked every bit 30+ years old.

My story begins with a car not pictured, my first car, a 1973 Triumph Spitfire. When I purchased that vehicle the owner purchased a 1979 Triumph TR7 to replace it. Six years later I purchased the TR7 off the same gentleman and I have owned it ever since.

My kids would browse the auto trader magazines and one day said "what?? this isn't a Triumph." I owned a GT6+ and they don't look related. I explained that they were mostly in junk yards, and not worth the headaches. They joked for 3 weeks that no one wanted it and it was still in the paper with a dropping price.
