August 2014

For once Mt Edgcumbe Show at the beginning of August was dry, but the usual traffic problems meant a slow journey home. A lot of Triumphs there, including that of new members Andy & Sandra with a very nice late 13/60, according to its paint code Sienna, but it looks darker than that.

Cheekily, we put Bill Bate (COM member on holiday) to work during August’s Club Night at the Star. Poor man unsuspectingly turned up at the pub and ended up valuing a lovely MkII Spitfire which was passing! Sorry Bill and thanks. We had another great turnout, celebrating Ian’s birthday in style – well you are only 51 once. It was a while since Julie had made it to a meeting, and it was lovely to see her and her newly painted TR7 – we’ll look forward to seeing Paul come out to play soon. We had a great show of 11 Triumphs out and plans were as usual made for the coming month. Colin had returned to his biker roots and was lovely in leather!

Summer returned just in time for the massive car meeting at Thornfalcon. 13 Triumphs, a mixture of our members and SOC, met at Exeter Services for the run up the M5 to Taunton. It was good to catch up again with Adrian who made the most of a rare day out with his Vitesse. Some TSSC ‘first timers’ – we welcomed Derek & Jen, Tim & Mel to their first runs with us, both in Vitesses. Tim’s had the first hard top I have seen on a Vitesse, and it looked good. The car is for sale though to fund ongoing work on his Stag. This show gets better and better, with 1200 cars on display this year. We met up with loads of other TSSC members there, including Robert with his lovely Herald, Eric & Dawn from Somerset and Paul & Penny, who are now in Cornwall, who had brought their recently acquired Bond Equipe along. South Wales and Somerset areas were there in force and it was good to catch up with them. Our intention was to drive on to Winsford on Exmoor for a cream tea and after it took a while to exit the show field unfortunately we lost some in the heavy traffic. Those of us who made it to Winsford had a lovely cream tea in this picturesque village before making our ways home
