I know the car well and it belonged to Mark Cox (TR7 enthusiast) - once the little problems are sorted then I think you have got a great car … enjoy!

Not famous, just known within the TR Drivers Club, as Chris said "belonged to Mark Cox"
If it's not broke don't fix it.

Nice looking car 8) Shame about the luggage rack on the boot.
But that is of course as ever a matter of taste :mrgreen:

Hi Hugh, unless I know the car and owner i couldn't comment with confidence if either was a good one or not from a web photo. I'd hate you to buy a lemon on my say so. The youngest of these are 36 years old now.

I just missed the Ullswater car show as we had to leave the Lakes early in the morning for Scotland. We saw the field marked out with one yellow MGB GT in it. Hopefully the rain held off for you.


Busheytrader I finally got my 7 but the headgasket went only two weeks after I bought it!! There's nothing fishy going on there I hope?!!!

Folks!!

I read in the pc classics book of cars of the 70s they gave the tr7 a right slating and an assination!! How rude!! They said it went from being "a triumph to a disaster" charming!! And besides the tr7 being a crap car (which it isn't!!) It is incredibly rude and offensive!!Some of things they said about it are too hurtful too repeat!!! :cry:

When I bought my first TR7 in 1988 I was refused membership of the TR Club Holland because it wasn't a real Triumph TR :shock:

Used to be a bit like that in Oz a few years back. These days, apart from the side curtain crowd Many who have earlier TRs now have a 7 as well.
