Nice TR6, one of the last of the British brutes. Great to see the car without those dreadful rubber overriders. You have done well Jim.

I always had a deep lust for one when I was a kid and they were new and way beyond my meager summer job would support and also lusted after the Bug Eye Healeys and MBG GT.

Ain't that the truth and they were only about 3,500 bucks new!

Always loved the TR series since High School in Spain but alas I'm 6'4" and just didn't fit so I went to the other side of the world and a Datsun 240Z. I'm on my second one now but its setting in my shop going though a long restoration. Because I'm just enjoying my MINI to much.

Your garages stand tall, my friend. That TR is really top shelf. Never heard of the surrey top before. Excellent work on both rides!
