Okay, so this may be old news, but I never found the time to tell you back in July about it – namely the new – well, sort of new – addition to the Deremer clan. The above car is a Triumph TR6 and on July 3rd, it found its way back to Florida after over 30 years ‘abroad’ in other parts of the country. This TR has actually been in our family for years. First my uncle purchased it sometime before the Second Dynasty of the Egyptian Empire, followed by my Dad purchasing it from him in 1987. For some reason unknown to me, he let my brother and I drive the car quite a bit, including to school (where one day the football players decided it would be fun to pick it up and turn it around). Surprisingly, the car survived!
For the last 12+ years, I’ve been rather relentlessly and not-so-subtly hinting that the TR would do very well down in Florida – and thankfully the fruits of my efforts were finally reaped this spring when my Dad offered the TR to me. Since getting it down here, I’ve put a few hundred more miles on the odometer and have had an absolute ball!
On a slightly realted note, we’ve now received official word that we’ll have our media credentials for the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. And, as always, Enjoy the photos!
