Before the blogs there were one or two of us doing "Car sagas" which were linked to the club's website.

When I started my blog I posted the "Car saga" on there and the first date I can see is 11th March 2004

So with today's post I am near as damnit 10 years on with blogging about all things Triumph and Club Triumph.

I have had and sold a Vitesse 6 and a Toledo (great car that one) as well as building up to my current Triumph fleet of 2 TR7s and a 2000.

It's amazing that time has passed but I hope people have found the blog interesting. Mind you, if you haven't never mind, it's a great record for me anyway

Now for the next 10 years

That's the advantage of a TR7. Always something to go wrong to write about, even after 10 years
