Read about my adventures driving across Australia in a car made in 1956.
|I have owned my TR3 for about 21 years. It is a 1956 car, no.008 assembled in Australia. In that time it has undergone a part restoration (body off, new floors and spare wheel well). I drove it for about 12 years as a regular car and have used it regularly since. In 2001 I drove it from Brisbane (east coast Queensland) to Albany in Western Australia, a distance of about 2500 miles, in seven days accompanied only by my dog.|
|The photos below were taken on my 2001 trip from Brisbane (Qld) to Albany in Western Australia and show the car at the WA border and at the final destination - Albany...|
|This black and white photo is my first TR with my little sister on the bonnet. I told her to look sultry but she thought I said sulky!
It was a very sad long door, despite the front. It ended up as a short door due to my finding a 'not so sad' car in a back yard in Brisbane and putting the best bits together. It was orange when sold in about 1968/69. Has anyone seen it?
