At the risk of raising the ire of my fellow Hoons, this olelongrooffan spotted this immaculate Triumph TR6 on the lot where I schlepe trailers and I thought my fellow Hoons would enjoy a few images of it. And you can should you choose to make the jump along with me.
I have previously mentioned about these Long Shots posts that this olelongrooffan tends to see like vehicles in groups of two or three in relatively short periods of time. Well my fellow Hoons it still holds true as I spotted this blue one just a few months ago in the same parking lot. This one has, to me, the more highly desirable chrome bumpers without those big assed rubber bumper pads as on that 76 blue one.
This TR6 is a dang nice automobile and it’s elderly owner kept his beauty in fine shape. I mean, look at the way that decal reflects off that rear bumper return.
I like the wheels on it but think the modern tires are a bit of a stretch. I would prefer the original red lines that were offered for this car. But I do understand his need for cost effective purchasing.
Although it might be difficult to determine this buggy is an ivory color and with that tan ragtop and tan leather interior, along with that wood dash, this thing checks off every box on my livery joining checklist.
While the owner didn’t have the top down, it was understandable as it was a bit nippy that day, he did have the rear window unzipped for some serious flow through ventilation. Remember when ragtops had zip open rear plastic windows? This olelongrooffan does.
Yeah, I would Hoon the crap out of this beauty and enjoy every minute of it.
I would have to get thejeepjunkie to assist in the hood latch alignment however.
But this owner is no dummy. At least he has enough experience with his British Leyland mechanicals to carry a modicum amount of tools, just in case.
