I don't think he will because if he doees sell his Gt6.........he will spend the rest of his life being haunted by the fact he sold it.  Regret will consume him.....

I'm tempted to buy it off him and store it until this TR-4/TR-250 phase is out of his system.  Then sell it back to him for the same price.

don't do it, you'll regret it.
i decided to sell 1 of my gt6's about 4 years ago, after storing it for 20+ yrs....when i had an opportunity to buy it back a few years ago, i did !

how about a spitfire racer? then maybe you could afford both....

Sold my Herald in November 98, after 17 years of ownership.

I still regret it.

No money to buy it back or ship it over to the USA.

I really regret it.

If I lived on the other side of the pond.......................................................

I would be begging Andre to sell it to me

And no I would not give it back when he realised his unholy mistake
Sorry Andre I know it's yours and it's your decision

I think you had such a good time at Watkins Glen that you may sell your little beauty but I'm going to vote NO!

I'm with BobbySpit: the voice of reason!
I can see the appeal of the TR4, especially if it has a power take-off as well, then you can thresh corn as well as plough fields with the Fergie engine !

I vote to keep both, Andre. One for the road, one for the track - a perfect balance.

You'll only get a few hours a year actually driving the TR4. You'll spend a few days in the paddock tweaking, adjusting and socialising with other racers, which is a pretty cool way to spend a day, I admit. The rest of the year, the TR will sit in the garage waiting to receive all the anodised go-faster goodies you can afford.

Meanwhile, the GT6 owes you nothing, it's ready to drive whenever the weather allows, down to the shops or cross-country. Gas'n'go, as your southern neighbours say.


Narrabri, NSW, Australia

Remember, it's not a bodge if no one finds out!

1969 Herald 13/60 (Signal Red). Built as CKD in New Zealand, imported to Australia in 2008.
1972 US-spec GT6 Mk3 (Green). Nearly finished, with 2.6L, EFI, a Supra 5-speed gearbox and Subaru diff.

Hmm, low cars - I'll bet that a middle floor could be constructed in the garage and the car not in use during the season could be kept up top.

Could just hang it on the wall.

18 to 4 eh.

I've been in stiff negotiations with the wife, loosing all of those too.

Doing a lot of reading about turning the GT6 into a semi racer, we'll see.

Never ask you're wife......just tell her what you're doing and that this is something you must do.  For years I would run all decisions past my wife and each time she would shoot down the ideas.  Finally I decided to just do what I wanted......while always making sure my decisions weren't recklessly dangerous for the family finances.  She doesn't question anything anymore and the family finances are just fine.

When I told her I needed a GT6 to go wiuth my Porsche 928 & Toyota Supra and Opel GT and Honda Sportbike and my minivan and her car......she asked me if I needed another car?  My response...."yes in fact I do.  This was something I've wanted to do for a long time and I'm going to buy it."

Of course you need to make sure you're moving the family finances ahead as well.....that all women care about and they will crush your dreasm if you let them..........it's their nature response.  

Of course now that I've let my wife only work 2 days a week, she pretty well lets me do whatever I want without second guessing anything.  

Of course you could always ask her "Why is it the first wife always says no and ther second wife always says yes?"  Come on.....I dare ya'?  I used that one on my wife with great success.  And yes we've been together for 30 years.....since high school.....so take my comments with a grain of salt......your situation may be different.

I reckon the Spitfire racer option is the best one.

BTW it only costs a 1000ish to send a car across the Atlantic.


Club Triumph Round Britain Reliability Run (Part of the organising team, what a team)!
RBRR is the best car event in the UK, not probably, it is!

1970 GT6 Mk.2: Royal Blue 6 RBRRs (98, 00,02,04,06 & 10), 2 10CRs (03 & 07). 2 HCRs 1 LCC, lots of Autosolos and numerous track days. Bought in 1983, crikey where did the time go! Now running the Roy Lacey cooling system!

1969 2.5Pi Mk.1: Slate Grey 3 10CRs (05,09 & 15), 3 RBRRs (08, 12 & 16), 3 HCRs, 2 LCCs. A few alloy panels, does need the pi kit fitting. Bought April '04. Needs paint! Just fitted some new 7J Minilites-not copies!

1967 Spitfire mk2: Wedgewood Blue. Bought November 2010. Almost seems civilised. Car has done a RBRR (Dave Picton 2010). Blimey, could be on the road soon!
