      Julius,
      You are Champ! Well done for taking the time for your visual and audio recordings, AND for your enthusiasm in celebrating the TR6 50th at venues so spread apart.
      Also it was great to see the huge turnout of American cars and drivers, and as usual, the quality of their machinery was impressive.
      Most had to endure heavy rain on the way, and on the way home, but for the show the Triumph Register arranged for perfect weather, great drives, organization and a very commendable banquet.

        Thanks! My Pleasure. Yes Britsports Motorcar Restoration & Repair since 1992 of Seattle is the shop (http://www.britsportofseattle.com/) I've known Mark Jones the owner since early 80's when he first started shop working out of his garage at home as you can see he does some incredible work before he retired my TR6 mechanic since 1983 Tom Eller & he were in business together loved going to the shop always something interesting and would hang out in the shop all day while work done on mine

          Willo appreciate the kudos appreciate you watching. Wanted to go to 6 Pac Trials cancelled 2 days prior burnt out from driving my TR6 in rain. How could I not owning my TR6 40 yrs how I maintain it is my interpretation of what TR6 means to me and to see 40 or more at each venue & celebrate TR6 milestone in TR history, meet/hang out/chat with my TR6 Peers, icing on the cake looking forward to the Who n What from the Trials.

          Surprised myself about the Cali turnout usually they don't travel north of Cambria sans Triumphest hosted by Triumph Travelers 2 longtime TR3 owners (1 bought month before) (2nd frame off resto) got new to them TR6 for the long haul didn't want to make journey in TR3 another testament to Best on the long distance King of the Road TR6 TRuly likes & demands to be driven. Side thought attended to bring the longest distance driven award (thought it was based on most direct route) Left home Tues 1 am arrived Seattle spent the night Wed arrived at venue Thurs 1400+ miles another Cali TR6 driver got the award 2000+ but the group he traveled with took several days sight seeing prior to arriving at venue google map distance his house there 1300+ my house there 1400+ non'the less the award for ATDI 2019 longest distance back in Cali (guy from Ohio trailered TR4 to Idaho drove from there to venue)

          Sitting in the TR6 Cave odometer reads 377,075 miles after the 2800+ round trip to BC ran flawlessly as expected 1 qt of vr1 Cali-Seattle changed oil/filter haven't driven since return, Monday oil/filter change detail, Saturday 10/12 off 2 hrs to San Diego British Car Day

              Best believe my intent was to attend no doubt by the pics would've loved to show up with my TR6 at 6 Pac Trials to celebrate 50th finally get to meet some of my East of the Mississippi TR6 Peers but fate decided otherwise had hotel reservations, one of those rare scheduling occasions when 4 major TRIUMPH events Triumphest/ATDI/6 Pac Trials/VTR all happened within a 30 day period after my return from the Pacific Northwest Sat 9/27th went on GF Sky/Solstice club event next day Sat 28th rained all day

              Sunday decided I was burnt out from driving My TR6 in rain as my drive through Ore/Wash was 5 yrs worth of torrential downpour in a few hrs, watching weather report that evening rain on the way to St Louis (Tex/Ok) choice to get reacquainted with my own H2O bed not indulge in eating anymore road kill and tailgate in the den & watch football all day, get back to my bike riding/jogging routine for next week's dr appt. Monday started editing video/pics footage called hotel canceled Monday afternoon. Timing/Rain got the best of me
