    Yes, just got my issue yesterday. And got to see the man in person once again. Got a couple of shots of his car, but not him, before my camera battery went dead Saturday.

      Thanks Jim 368,000 on odometer at time of photo shoot after return from TRIUMPHest 2018 Sacramento, Ca odometer reads 372,010 sitting in TR6 Cave in my quest to Drive 1/2 million miles on same TRIUMPH TR6

      Special Thanks to Moss Motors David Stuursma who approached me @Woodley Park All Brit 2018 about idea of submitting my LBC story to Moss Motoring Magazine and Damon the photographer who coordinated the photo shoot drove Riverside to Santa Barbara spent several hours shooting at different locations another great TR Moment as I stated to them I felt my well maintain high miler TR6 deserves it, kept like a trailer queen never on a trailer, not driven often but when I do I drive a lot often times 22 hrs straight Driving my TR6 is a Passion

      Props to my fellow LBC enthusiasts number in the thousands over the years as I started TR clubin' 1981 who's comment: Looks good as ever! Your TR6 looks the same as always! Still looking good! translate into a form of peer pressure that has served me & my TR6 well Keep It Clean & Drive It. While at TRIUMPHest 2018 longtime TR friend from Washington State showed me text on his phone from another longtime friend in Washington send greetings & congrats on making the cover of Moss Motoring Magazine currently here to post vides/pics from TRIUMPHest 2018 saw this post personally haven't rec'd mag yet so anxiously waiting

      I'm humbled and at the same time extremely proud and honored to be selected to represent my TR6 & story in Moss Motoring Magazine as one of the select group of individuals fortunate enough to be owned by British Iron in the world

        Julius, it's just a beautiful clean car, and it takes work to keep it that way. That's quite a compliment that it made the cover of a mag.

          World record perhaps - anyway, there's no greater sign of devotion to a marque than piling on the miles! At ~ 35 mph average that works out to 5 man years of continuous engagement! ( 40 hour weeks ).

          A real inspiration you are, Julius! I know I speak for many in saying so, and also contend that nothing else feels like a TR6.

              By the time they take my keys away hope to achieve that record for a TR6 owned a lot of autos over the years from brand spanking new from the factory '67 chevelle malibu as my hi-school senior car had it 13 yrs owned it & my TR6 for one year 2gether before someone totaled it but absolutely nothing is like the TR6 the feel sound look whew! don't get me started, not fast quick or hi-performance but you can tweak 'em to be quite responsive

                The cleanest TR6 I ever saw, when we first got ours around other owners.

                .....and still the cleanest...

                ....won so many awards, he doesn't even enter anymore....(giving us up-and-comers a chance....)

                Cant wait for the article!

                  Nice photos and a nice story Julius! How long did it take to get the TR6 hubs lined up so perfectly for the cover shot?

                    Thanks Skip 250 my copies are in the mail at Memorial Party for Herman couple peeps commenting on the writing something about TRv6 and that writers should've known better not sure what he's referring too but figured they'd do some editing on my lengthy story to fit there layout scheme as well the cover photo is photo shopped new age appearance hence the color variation from regular pics and the TR6 "Red Badge of Courage" emblems on the hubs manipulated to line up perfectly on that shot not complaining as I'm still honored to represent on the cover

                        Yeah, I chuckled a little at the British V6 comment, thinking that they mis-quoted you, or you didnt have a chance to proof read the article before print (or both)

                        Heres the cover shot. (I hope)

                          I was excited to see a TR6 on the cover and was wondering if it was of you guys here. It's a very good article! Congrats on the cover and the article.

                            Julius,

                            I think you should drive to next years TRials in St Louis. It will never be closer to you. And it will give us Eastern and Midwest guys a chance to see your car.
