Moving over 600 cars onto
the show field by only one entrance is no easy task but
after 21 years they've got it pretty well figured out.
We got there about 9:00 AM and were parked with in 10
minutes...........right between Rick Patton's home grown
direct injected and supercharged TR6 and Dave
Friedlander's award winning TBI TR6. This was Dave's 3rd
year here and he's placed 2nd & 3rd in class so
hopefully he'll move up to first this
year.................and he did! To Rick's credit for
producing a great product there were 4 TBI TR6's and 1
TBI Spitfire at the show. All of us with TBI cars spent
a lot of time explaining the upgrade to folks and maybe
Rick will get a new sale or two.
I've got over 200 pictures
to post so let's get started........
was probably the most "significant" TR6 at the
the "smart" guys are going...... OMG....it's the
2nd to last TR6 produced. I believe that Bob
Tullis of Group 44 fame has the last one.
there's only 6 cars with this factory installed
looking at the Bill of Sale for this car, sensed
someone come over to me and asked if he was the
original owner.... When I looked up and saw a 30
year old...I knew it wasn't him. He told me that
his Dad bought the car new and his first ride in
it was as a 6 month old. His next ride in the car
was the day before when his Dad got it back on the
road after storing it with less then 12,000 miles
on it. Dad would never say exactly why he put the
car away but did say that he kept it maintained as
best he could over the years.
getting it back on the road he did all the safety
stuff with new tires, hydraulics, brakes, hoses
etc. He also installed a new exhaust but still has
the old one. The paint and interior looked
absolutely great... as did engine bay.
the speedometer turned 12,000 miles on the trip to
few 3 wheel Morgans including the pretty blue 1926
Check out the details on this 80+ year old car
of 5 on the field and 2 won awards.
Friedlander completed the 3 year tri-fecta
by adding a 1st place to the previous year's 2nd &
3rd place trophies.
never found this owner to find out what kind of
seats they were.....but they fit.
Think there's a color theme going on here?
owners have a sense of humor......
real nice 1952 Triumph Mayflower
GT6 with all the "period" correct
accessories........ if you're a skier you'll
understand. I felt like I was back in college
looking at this stuff. This car belongs to Tim
Hutchisen who has a restoration business in Maine
and he uses the car as his daily runner for car
