Triumph TR6
« on: January 12, 2014, 06:01:15 AM »
Moving at the end of March to a bigger, slightly cheaper place, nestled back in the woods in the artists' community of Arden, in the outskirts of Wilmington. Went over yesterday to sign the lease (Liz's dad fronted us the deposit money - that guy is awesome). Anyway, the landlord has this in his garage... for sale, as they can't take it with them. I'm trying to work a deal where we pay a little more rent and it stays with me. He's amenable but not sure yet. He's going to keep it for sale for the next few weeks, and if a cash offer comes in, he'll take it. I may or may not end up with this. I've wanted one of these for as long as I've been driving, and as I'll be living 5 minutes from work, it's not like i have to really rely on the thing (which is good).  :inlove:

*this isn't the actual car, but it's the same color and almost as nice condition.

Rent must be really cheap if you can afford to pay extra for a car  8)


Speaking of which, have you figured out what to do with the Subaru yet?

My GF has been looking for a convertible and wants something unique. She keeps seeing MG's, Triumph's, etc. I keep trying to talk her into a Miata because I dont want to be working on it all the time nor having to rescue her on the side of the road. lol

Long term, I'd probably put a small block chevy in it. :-)

The thing is, I don't even like Miata's, but I like relaibility and don't have time to wrench on another vehicle.

Here's an idea that will guarantee you a happier outcome: Once every couple of months someone from the board who lives in the region will walk up to you, kick you in the nads and take all the money in your wallet before dropping you off in some dark and shitty location. In the rain. See, it's the experience of owning a British sports car without having to actually own the fucking thing.

BTDT.

Go buy a Miata or a Honda S2000.

Seriously though. That in line 6 is a great little engine and it's as reliable as a stone axe if it was well maintained. You also have the advantage of having this place practically in your back yard.

One of the prettiest automobiles ever. The proportions and lines are near perfect.
I too have lusted after the TR6 for many a year and I don't even like cars.
A real cool opportunity the likes of which fall into your lap once in a lifetime.


That said, FOR JAH'S SWEET SAKE DON'T DO IT! NO GOOD WILL COME OF THIS!







If you do choose to walk that road (and walk you will), buy it and give it to your ex. She deserves it.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

the SB chevy conmversion was semi- common at the time . . . . . all the ones I saw or worked on had slushboxes, which great eased the installtion, but took away some of the essential fun, I thought . . . .


I see that you've backed away from this particular cliff -- putting a more powerful mill in that car today would, of course, be more complex legally, and I would crawl over that aged frame with a magnifying glass before doing so . . . . .

We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Yeah, I never understood the "it's easier to go auto"... especially all the gear boxes of the day were case-mounted shifters and 5 minutes with a welder and bammo... instant clutch pedal. Cable conversions were all the rage and Muncie 21 and 23 rock crushers were EVERYWHERE.

I kinda semi-specialized in doing V8 conversions on Vegas and Monzas there for a while... even did a couple of Pintos.

Good times... times were good. I enjoyed taking money from people with more money than brains.

That.

I've almost bought several Spitfires and a TR6 over the past 20 years. Everyone of them had either a bent frame or more rust than I was willing to deal with. I'm always looking for the right car at the right price. It might happen some day.

Three pages, and none of you so called "friends" have told him not to buy it? What kind of friend lets someone buy a vintage British car???

Because deep inside, he knows better than to throw money that he doesn't have into that wallet-sucking hunk of metal. And if actually made a step in that direction, a few of you guys would beat him senseless -able  :)

As stated...

Eh. Going over the math I would be cutting it too close. It was a dream of the moment but with a few days to add some objectivity, I just can't do it feasibly. Ah well. The dream continues.

Also...

He already bought it.

Nope.  :-\

Also, not CT - Delaware. I'm not getting commission on the sale, so y'all can search online ads, too, without me.  :twofinger:

Hell, bud, from more that three furlongs away, Delaware and Connecticut blend together . . . natural mistake.
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

CT has fewer rednecks per square miles and DE has almost no angry New Yorkers. That might be about the only differences worth noting, though.

I said "Connecticut or wherever". Sorry, I don't stalk you. Don't take your bullshit problems out on me. I don't want the car. I just wondered what something like that goes for. I'll ask one of my business associates who wholsales cars the next time I see him, if I think about it. Thanks! Cheers
