The Triumph TR2/TR3/TR3A series automobile was a revolution in sports car design in the 50s.

The TR2/TR3 was a "poor mans" sports car. It was the first car that the "man on the street" (originally retailing for just £950) could afford that could break 100mph, and it was also the first production car to offer disc brakes, a feature that Jaguar later made famous.

I've always been fascinated by this car, and here is the history of my current TR3A vehicle.


I've also included some general information on projects I'm working on in the car (including photos), in the hopes that it will help other people solve the problems I've been needing to solve.
