    Arrow Triumph Graveyard, Warrington - July 2010


    There is a Triumph restorer in Warrington and he has a scrapyard of donor cars. It is an interesting poke-about, and quite photogenic.

    Visited with Ceejam.



















    Hope you like :)

    The revery alone will do, if bees are few.

    I remember as kids,this guy around the corner from us having this rusted out old Triumph Stag.We asked him if he would sell it to us; he half agreed to the idea,but upon us turning up with the said money,proclaimed we had inspired him to do the old girl up himself.
    True too his word,a couple of years later he had this gorgeous maroon Triumph Stag done up to pristine beauty,the guy was good enough to give us all ride in the car that had filled our childhood dreams; we felt like kings riding in that beautiful car.

    Thats a really nice gesture of him, I remember being offered a Triumph 2000 when i was 16, bright yellow and looked gorgeous, seeing as i was too young to drive,and even if i had waited until i was 17 could never afforded to run it, Mum and Dad soon put that to bed. I did get given a Vauxhall Viva for my 17th birthday by my brother however, not much of a compromise really, but hey it was a car.
