Built  at the Triumph Coventry, England  factory in October 1973.

Purchased new in March 1974 from Jake Kaplan Motors  in Providence, RI. 
Luckily, we still have original bill of sale and window stickers.

Driven on and off through college and for next eleven
years sparingly, but never through any New England winters.

Garaged throughout this time, but many days in the
hot sun resulted in faded Mimosa paint.  Exterior repaint in 1985.

Now some serious non-use takes place from 1986 through 2003,
when leaking throttle shafts force rebuilds and the LBC bug starts to bite again

Quick R&R of carburetors after pushing out of gas
fume filled garage and Fed-X shipment to TRF results
in much better running car, but still too many competing interests.

A 2005 trip to Larz Anderson Museum for British Car Day featuring
Triumphs puts us back on track.  LBC Bug bites hard this time.

We joined several New England British Car Clubs, met many
 great people and had very nice time(s) with friends who had same interests.

Many mechanical changes were and continue to be made,
some classic, some modern, some neither, but just because
 we want to.  When possible, we stayed as original as possible.

When performance and reliability could be enhanced along
with our preferred aesthetic changes, we did what we wanted to do.

Much has been accomplished and much remains to be done, but the
object now is to drive and enjoy it.  The work can wait until it's cold again!

The rest is what follows in the individual pages and photo gallery.
