I have recently enjoyed a wonderful day out courtesy of a local classic car club. It is a club for Triumph 'TR' (Triumph Roadster) owners and was provided as a fun day for the Dads of children who are involved with the hospice I work at. This was a brilliant idea and was thoroughly enjoyed by the Dads who attended.

After coffee and a chance to peer into the many cars on show, we each chose which car to travel in and were driven off to a lovely country pub in the Cotswolds where we were all treated royally to food and drink and then driven back again.

There were a wide range of TR models to choose to ride in plus the rare treat of a rogue Jaguar E-type. I picked a Triumph 'Peerless'. It was a truly amazing experience.
I was very impressed when I was told that it has actually competed at Le Mans.

On the way back, I selected a Triumph TR3A which was navy blue with a luscious tan leather interior. The most notable design feature of this car is the drop down doors which you can see in the photo just under the elbow of the pink poser who needless to say was only allowed to sit in the drivers seat after the ignition key was safely removed.

All in all a truly memorable day for which many thanks to the Cotswold Vale TR Register.
