With the eyes of the operator - point of view photographs have been the only ones I got a direct reaction via e-mail during the last year. Some of them even reappear on other site and social media (most of the time without a source) - so evendently there is a need, but I'm wondering if it can substitute anything. Most of the cars are prettier from the outside, flowing forms, chrome, shining colour and you don't get the feel, smell, sound of an old car - only more time to read the dials.
The sun is rising early enough, so that I get to drive to work with the first glimpse of light on the horizent. Since I'm eastward driving, I get to enjoy and follow every day as the days are getting longer and longer.
If you must drive to work every day, the radio is all the time playing the same boring tracks, no engine sound if you turn it down, no charisma and the car does not feel special – maybe you should choose to use your classic car.
1953 to 1965, 12 years of development and styling, from the TR2 to the TR4A IRS, the alpha and the omega of the 4 cylinder Triumph Roadster series, together on the road. If you look carefully, you can find a lot of similarities.
Even if I do not drive during the wintertime, the hardtop is ideal to enjoy a cold day in November, with no snow and salt on the road. It was a long journey, from the bare shell I bought, repairs, paint, and the toughest of them all, getting the rear glass in - one winter did pass, furthermore spring and autumn but now - when most of the people put their cars inside the garage, I'm looking forward to drive around with my TR4A and it's hardtop.
Why would you buy a TR4A new? What was it like, what are your memories of a car you owned 50+ years ago? A touching and interesting Video about Harry being reunited with the TR4A he bought new in 1965, his views and thought on the car, photography and memories. A video I found online, worth to share, worth to have a look at.
