Ooooooooooooooh, should I feel elated or depressed that even I remember these? Your call, we were born in the same year (us, not the car, that is.)

Beautiful shot!

If I recall the Triumph is a little car that can zip around all over and take real sharp turns, right, Mojo? Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

Nice sporty little number! I can't imagine driving something as cool as that.


Happy RT!

Nice car!

This TR-3 looks nice in red. I always assumed that all British roadsters were found in the usual green, But ruby seems a natural too, and looks nice against wire wheels with their polished spokes. Of coirse, the TR-3 in any color is a real adventure to the driver, especially when turning left next to those cut down doors - watch those elbows!

Doubt I've ever seen this babe before anywhere in Singapore. But just from the up close shot, it's a beauty! Shiny too!!!

Great shot!

I think my father still mourns the Triumph convertible he had to sell when his very pregnant wife could no longer fit in it! (Yes, I started causing trouble at a very young age.)

WOO HOONESS...the only thing better than a classic sports car like this is when it is R.E.D.
Love this post. (am wondering about the flower statement??)

bj said...

OK, never mind...I now see it's just a statement...:O)

I wish I came across all these great cars, this red is "Hot"! I did park next to a Lamborghini at the hospital the other day but it was new.... no personality and the color was lame Oh well!
