Who here is attending Triumphest next week?
I'll do a survey on interior door handle orientation on all wedges in attendance.

Good turnout of Wedges at Triumphest, I counted 15, and not a single coupe. I checked armrest direction for fun, it was about 50/50. One car from Canada even had one forward, and one back!

We were there and had a GREAT time as did everyone I have talked to. Once we got there I was so busy I forgot about taking pictures so here are a couple from the road. Good job DCTRA. Thanks, Rob and Bonny Bowen car #89

P.S. The car ran great the whole trip.

Rob, I spent a lot of time checking out your car, but I never did get to meet you.
Any chance you are going to the San Diego British Car day October 8th?

Hi Steve,
no we will be "grand-kidding" that weekend. Thanks for the nice words about the car, post some more pics of yours so I know which one it was. It was a grand weekend wasn't it, anyone that was not there really missed it. Only 360 days 'til Triumphest Sacramento, it needs to be another day longer, not enough time to see and do all you want to. Thanks, Rob

Used the paint code from TWOA and it seems to be right. Proof will be when I look in the trunk to compare...thumbs up

In reply to # 1488695 by bowen6951 post some more pics of yours so I know which one it was.

Rob, Here is a picture of my 8, and my TR6. My 27 year old son was helping me wrangle the cars around. We started on the rally after the Saturday show, my Wife and I in the 8, my son and his girlfriend in the 6. We ended up just cruising around Flagstaff, it was a really fun afternoon for us, and the cars ran perfectly.

Hi Steve,
if I would have looked at the previous pics I would have recognized your car, I really like the looks of your wheels. I think the smoke centers set off the black on the bottom and bumpers, and there weren't too many 81s there. Thank, Rob
