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.

Thirty years ago, May 1972, I bought this vehicle from Mr. Caraballo and it is still mine. I used it for five or six years as my only vehicle while I was a university student and part of the time while I was working. When I turned 27, I married and paraded in my Triumph with my wife next to me.

Last month our British Motor Club of Southern New Jersey club members attended a workshop at Motorcar Garage on the Lucas electrical and wiring systems, famous in British cars.
