Hows that TR3A? We had a TR4A IRS when I was a kid, and have thought about picking one up and restoring it for my dad...
All in good fun - always!

Triumph? It's good from far, far from good. A solid 10 footer 8-). I "restored" it (rolling resto) ~ 13yrs. ago. My summer commuter. Bore'd and cam'd, it goes pretty strong. Total jalopy tho heh heh - just look at the panel "fit"! My kids dig it (yes I don that gear whilst piloting - DORK I am - but it's obligatory):



Too funny, we too had a 4A IRS growing up - one of 3 new cars my family has ever bought. Dad passed in '91, and it sat rotting in a barn for years until last year it got evicted, then evicted of it's replacement place, and I finally 'gave' it away. Saw it on ebay a week later. Sigh. Couldn't justify resto'ing that one, even tho it was his. Could easily just buy a WAY nicer one for far less dough.

That's why I got my '3 in '93 tho, in his honor. He traded a '3 in on the '4 in '66.

Neat cars. Sorry for the thread hijack!
