Looks a tidy example, any pictures of the interior and the engine bay

Almost forgot, I did get around to finishing off the other Triumph from my "back-catalogue" smile



Mine was bought as a non-runner, in fact it didn’t have an engine or gearbox!!

Getting towed back from the scrapyard where I bought it from was a harrowing experience as the propshaft was flailing around a bit just inches from my leg even though it was tethered - and yet I was young and stupid at the time. I’d planned on fitting a V8 in the hole.

Youthful exuberance had to finally give way to the realities of no garage, having it parked in my mum’s garden and not enough money or progress being made so the car ended up being broken up for parts. It never did end look quite as good as my drawing. Oddly enough the DVLA states it was red but it was definitely yellow.

In terms of the artwork, I’ve improved (simplified) my process a little from the Dolomite, better lines but still too complex for what I'm really after. I’d also like to add some more creative flair here as I'd do with a painting so there's likely to be a version two of this. As it is I'm able to reproduce in any printable colour and with some small degrees of customisation, number plate, lower suspension, go-faster stripes biggrin , etc.

Took the TR6 up to a field at the weekend to get a shot with the Nürburg castle in the background which you can just about see biggrin

I love that! I have driven a non-turbo Acclaim and really liked it. I bet that the turbo version is a hoot.

Went to a car meet with a mate of mine. He has a lovely Magenta

He does, and he also has correct for year number plates, ignoring the a-historical nonsense emanating from DVLA.

That TR6 does look very nice indeed.

Is that a non-standard colour - looks like a gunmetal silver to me?

Point of order please teacher

On the TR6, I thought originally they were minilites, as I love a minilite, however, I've just noticed the massive chrome centre hubs, what's all that about then?

I missed this before. Properly cool. (And I don't care how anyone else defines cool.)

Seen a few TR6’s in that shade of grey or similar, really suits the car.

They're a centre lock fitting with chrome non-eared spinners.
