Called in at the local brewery yesterday ... their promotional ex ice cream van.
And just down the road from there, a Morris marina pulled alongside me.

A few pictures taken around Bude this weekend. The Triumphs were on their around Britain bi-annual reliability run. The red estate and yellow saloon are not Triumph 2000's but are actually Stags and are very rare. Saloon is believed to be the only surviving one of three built. There were 26 estates but again very low number of survivors.

Fascinating about the 4-door Stags. I never knew they existed.

Seen in Warminster, Wilts

This is one of my favourite re-creations based on a shortened chassis of a Bristol 406

Elegant Bristol 407 5.1 litre V8. The best looking of the V8 Bristols I think.

Wow - a P76 in the UK. Fancy that.
There are few nice ones around here - including a mint example of the ultra-rare Force 7 coupe version. Annoyingly, I've deleted my photo of it.

I thought they were called triumph 3000s, not Stags, a great idea probably not put into production due to the engine issues at the time that we are all aware of. Time has proven they are great reliable engines when looked after properly, just a good design before their time. I know the chap who has the only Triumph 3000 FF estate, there was a FF saloon too, and a number of FF stags.

Two in one! The Manta driver did a handbrake-downhill-drift in a hairpin (loud, tires screetching), 200m further down the police where standing, sternly looking at us ( :roll: ) as we drove by. Manta drivers... haven‘t changed since the 80s?! Gave him a thumbs up nonetheless as I passed him on the motorway.

I showed the Jensen at the annual high end show, primarily of European cars, at Americana, here on Long Island. The Jensen gets a lot of attention despite the competition from multi-million dollar classic Ferraris, Lamborghinis etc.
