The car is a 1975 Triumph TR7, first year of the new Triumph 7. It was a non sunroof coupe with a 4 speed. Purchased new through the power of television advertising...the shape of things to come! Nice to drive, handled better than a Impala but had no power. Another 1 year for me car that made way for a 260Z. A shame because they really were good cars but an unfortunate product of the ailing Leyland at the time. In my opinion cars like the Datsun Z and later RX7 just set the standard too high for the TRs and MGs to match. That may not be a popular statement but I can see it even today. I own both a MGB and 240z and even though the MG has more tradition and cache the Z is a far superior car in performance and appointments.
