The Triumph world is full of all sorts of people. I spend time on some Triumph messageboards and forums. It is always good to be recognised in real life - although more often than not it my Vitesse that is noticed rather than me.
After the Retro Race show my car got a mention on the club triumph forum and now I have noticed a picture on the KD Triumph Blog of Karl Dandridge. And yes I must admit that my Vitesse does have excellent fascia air vents thanks to Karl.
I must try harder to recognise/meet the people behind the cars/messages.

We used my Vitesse to tow my other halfs dead little Renault 5 out of the yard for Tommy Croyden and daughter "the wrecker" to take it away. The 5 had stood awhile and one of the tyres was almost completely flat, so I had to pull pretty hard to get the thing to start moving - a little slipping the clutch was needed to start. Used a tow rope on the Vitesse tow bar. No real problem doing the job the Vitesse has alot of low down grunt. I wonder how many Triumphs get used for towing.
