Here's my other British Toy; a 1972 Triumph TR6. Spent about 2.5 years going through the restoration process. Finished it up the summer before I bought the Exige. It's all stock except for the webber carbs and the Ansa Exhaust. Anyway, just thought I'd share some pics.

Also, here's a video I took with my GoPro.

She is a beauty. I grew up riding shotgun in a red Triumph Spitfire. My mom actually sold it and bought it back again. It started the British sportscars bug for me.

Yeah, I certainly understand the family influence. My dad was always loved British sports cars and gave me the bug. He took me to a bunch of British cars shows growing up and owns his dream car, a 1963 Jaguar XKE. Beautiful lines on that thing. The nice thing is we can now go to the shows together in our own cars. Lots of fun!

Awesome thing to do with your dad. My family switched to BMW after the 1989 xj6. :shrug:

Ha, my parents both switched to BMW about 10 years ago. M3 for my dad, Mini copper for my mom. He still has the Jag though.
