A Long Time Coming

Prior to the much anticipated millennium, this my 15-year chronicle started to unfurl. It began innocently enough with a brisk drive here in North Idaho at an excursion with Northwest British Classics. The next day, I heard a knocking sound emanating from under the bonnet of my 1971 Triumph TR6 when I first fired it…

Next Round’s On Me

After many, many years of pining for a TR6, I was finally able to acquire a 1973 in remarkably good condition, which I drove to and fro along back roads and byways at breathtaking speeds.

January 2014: So there I sat, engulfed with despair, with only the memories of my dad to reflect upon. Although our vocations and interest differed greatly, during visits, the conversation would eventually gravitate toward automotive sports and vehicular adventures. His funeral now over, I needed a project to focus on and the healing process to…

Shop Profile – King Triumphs

There are some people that spend their retirement doing yard work or reading quietly in a favorite chair. After 30 years as an engineer, James King decided to try and turn his hobby into a business with more success than most have in their regular careers. King Triumphs made its reputation performing TR6 restorations and…

Garage Echoes

I’m an empty-nester as I write this. My last child left home this past weekend and, like her three sisters before her, she will never return to live with me though I may see her from time to time. The move came suddenly, unexpectedly, as her 18th year in my house approached. One day I…
