Here's the TR250 while it sat in the body shop. The frame and suspension have been restored; the tub has already been dipped and is now waiting to have floor pans, sills, and whatnot welded in. The "temporary" wire wheels were some worn out beaters that came with one of the donor cars.
Home at last! Putting the shiny bits back together was when the fun really started! Working on the frame, suspension, and brakes had probably been my favorite part. Putting the body and interior back together...not so much.
These images were shot in September, 2001. My 1968 Triumph TR250 was driven under its own power for the second time and parked for some beefcake pics. Still missing a few incidental items, like the convertible top, hub caps, and other bits and pieces. Oh, and license plates.

It is obvious that the car is rather attractive, but who are those good looking people riding in it? Are they movie stars? Eastern European royalty? Heads of state?
Don't you wish that you were famous, too?
