Triumph Club Open Day 2014 - featuring Bond Equipe


Recommended Posts

Last job for tonight/this morning is to provide you with some pictures I took at the Triumph club open day thing that Mikeknight took me to.  GT6 on the left, Spitfire on the right, apparently.  I dunno, all old cars look the same.

First thing we saw upon arriving was this.  I was happy, Mike said something along the lines of "Oh God, why is it so brown?"

The chap that owned this also owns an Avon version in Karate/Karache Gold over Russet Brown.  But that wasn't there to photograph so have another shot of the Acclaim instead.  Interesting factoid about this Acclaim is that he bought it after the guy who owned it had a heartattack while underneath it changing the rear suspension and it was his neighbour that found him.

Pretty sure this is the same one I saw at Waddington a year or two ago.  Looks like it hasn't been washed since then either.

Triumph based, but I have no idea what it is.

Concept model for a new Triumph, with strong hints of the pre-war Dolomite about the grille.  Sadly never got any further than this.

Bond Equipes aren't exactly commonplace, but to see one this early was a surprise.

So there you go, just a little picture dump for this one.
