Introduction I've owned the same Triumph GT6 since 1988. A 71 Rotoflex model, over the years I've replaced nearly every mechanical component and I've had some major body work done. I'm a firm believer in using my car,I've driven it to Europe sveral times visiting Holland, France, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. I've also completed the Club Triumph Round Britain Run in it twice and got as far as John O'Groats a 3rd time. Prior to owning the GT6 I owned a '76 1500 Spitfire and a '76 Dolomite 1850. In 2013 I expanded my collection of Triumphs by adding a Dolomite 1500hl with overdrive, which I subsequently sold back to one of it's previous owners, my mate Darren in 2021. I'm an active member and club official of both the TSSC and Club Triumph holding the post of TSSC GT6 Register Secretary and Club Triumph Area Group rep for North Hampshire. Outside of Triumph's I'm a part time single Dad looking after my 18 year old Daughter Georgie during term time whilst my 20 year old son James is away at Uni.
