Any car with X’s over the headlights is an instant favorite. It is a sign that the car is ready to play — and play hard.
This Triumph TR6 from ~1974 at Kiawah Island Cars and Coffee definitely looks ready to run itself with the gas pedal pinned to the floorboards.
The paint-job is a bit heat-collecting for the hot South Carolina summers; at least top-down air will keep you cool once on the move.
Overall, the lower rally lights and good body panels make this car a chic and fun option versus a modern roadster. All the thrills, but hopefully not all the bills?
Will Triumph cars ever be back? There is, actually, a good possibility that it will return some day. BMW kept just a handful of intellectual property when divesting Rover and Land Rover in the late 1990s: the MINI brand and the Triumph cars brands are among the IP BMW retained in the (fire) sale.
Based on the fun-loving spirit of this TR6, we think it is high time to get back to basics. And have a blast doing so!
