When I was around 10 years old my uncle stopped by our house with a Triumph TR3. I remember thinking that it was the coolest car I've ever seen. Since then I have been collecting and restoring British cars when the chance came I was able to purchase a 1959 TR3A.

One holiday season about ten years ago my family was sitting around looking at old family photos and my son ran across a photo of me in the first car I ever owned, a 1959 Triumph TR3A. He then proceeded to ask me all about it, color, since the photo was black and white, options and the like. I did not think any more of it.

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.

When I was 10 I went to FL with my Mom on a bonding trip. Because I loved cars even at that age we went window shopping at a luxury car dealer and she admitted that her dream car was a roadster. We were both born and raised in a small town in PA so I had never even seen a roadster before that day. I told her one day I would buy one for her.

It was 1969 and upon my return from a cruise with the "Gulf of Tonkin Yacht Club", I immediately pursued a dream that had been left behind. I still had a desire for low power, high speed and fast turns. At the time, I was working part time at a local hotel pub, and one day, a gentleman who was a bit down in luck was selling his car.
