Jim Johnson 1964 TR4

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.

Had a 1969 try and spitfire in the 70's. Always missed it so, recently I bought a 1974 Triumph Spitfire. Had a frame off restoration but being a Spitfire always need something fixed, keeps me busy during my retirement. Really enjoy the car.

One afternoon a friend of mine brought his Spitfire over to have some work done - I knew then (at the age of 14) I wanted a Triumph after seeing his. I mentioned to my Father about getting one and right away said "No".

Once we got to his house, this friend opened his garage to reveal a tiny car (or mostly a car, there were many pieces strewn across the garage floor). He said, “You’ve got two weeks until you start your job. If you can put this back together before then, it’s yours for the summer.”

I was not allowed to test-drive it or even start it.  I thought the price was too high, but the owner refused to budge.  I knew that only 2500 and change had ever been built, and this was likely to be my only opportunity to buy one.

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 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.

Mike Sportsman 1973 TR6

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.

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.
