I owned, restored and modified my Triumph Herald from March 1981 to November 1998, when I eventually sold it.
I restored my Triumph Vitesse in the UK, between June 1984 and April 1997, then I brought it with me to the USA when I emigrated here in March 2002. I am still modifying it, and may never be done.

1st May 1991: Went to TSSC Surrey Area Meet in 1974 Triumph 2000 Mk.2 Saloon GAV 503N - for the last time!
