My friend said he saw a Triumph at a gas station near where he worked and it was in really nice condition.

He talked to the gas station owner and asked him why the car was there.

"It's here for an oil change" He said.

I was just wondering if anyone could make a guess as to which model it was.

Thanks in advance!

P.S.

"I thought the whole point of having a car like this was to change the oil yourself".

TR7. That's my guess.

Nobody thought that it might have been a TR6?

In reply to # 1499103 by 1147cc is this a guessing game?

Yes, it was, but I think the OP just disclosed the identity.

Some of us live in apartments and cannot change the oil ourselves, as a result. I had to drive 250 miles to my mother’s in order to complete suspension and anti—roll bar work.
