Graham Brohan sent in a link to an interesting batch of photos showing a TR3A at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon!

The custom wheel distributor has used a classic TR3A to showcase its classy wheels. The TR has boofed out mudguards and front apron but otherwise is clearly based on a stock TR3A.

VALE - Merran Olson 19 Nov 2016     RIP

This photo was taken in Dandenong by Viv Paine!

This is the original Albury Concours venue.

The actual venue used in the middle of the city was much better with great public exposure.

Founding Member and Life Member Alan Mitchell gave an interesting talk about the conditions which led to the formation of the Register. Both he and Life Member John Murn were the prime movers and were ably assisted by other pioneering members.

Alan performed the ceremonial cutting of the cake which was a tribute to the first 40 Years as well as to Kerrie Holliday's skills in creating the cake!

2016 is the 40th Anniversary of the formation of the TR Register Australia.

It is with great sadness that we advise that John Buck passed away on the 1st Sep 2016. John battled ill health for many, many years without complaint although the journey for him was very tough.

Buckey's funeral was held at 3pm Monday 12th Sep at Centenary
Memorial Gardens. Reports indicate that at least 300 family and friends
attended the service.
There were at least 16 TRs

Marcia Collens passed away in August 2016. Marcia was Merv's other half and the pair were much loved in the Register. She was such a delightful person - she is with Merv now. RIP

Look at this TR ...
Yes! - it is a derivative based on a TR chassis,
with a body featuring a retractable hardtop.

An outstanding achievement.

In 2016 Stephen & Ginetta Rochester were awarded the coveted Gold Targa Plates for successfully finishing three Targas in a row!

Well done.

Gavin Rea found this memorial to Merv Collens next to Quays Marina at Bayview. He says "It was very touching and most appropriate that Merv should have a memorial plaque there as he and Marcie spent a huge amount of time sailing the waters of Pittwater." Click Pic to view the spot.
