My first car was a 1967 Triumph Spitfire Mk3 back in 1977 which I fell in love with when I saw it on a garage forecourt. I was 17, had just passed my test and withdrew all Â£350 of my savings to buy it. I was hooked on Triumphs! I learned a great deal about maintenance and repair during ownership of this and subsequent cars including Mk4 Spitfire, Dolomite, GT6 Mk3 a further Spitfire Mk3, Spitfire Mk4 and now TR6. I joined the TSSC in 1980 as one of its earliest members and following a break without a Triumph whilst bringing up a family, I re-joined again just before buying the TR6 in 2003.
When a new Shropshire Group was set up a few years ago I was keen to get involved. This in turn led to me making many new friends and taking part in some spectacular driving activities both in the UK and abroad. When I realised that I had experience that could be of benefit to The Club I was happy to become involved with the design, build and running of Clubs Website. I believe that the Clubs' IT infrastructure is key to its continued development and am pleased to offer my time to ensure that it continues to be one of the biggest and best Triumph owner Clubs around.
