8th Annual Chazziz Valentines Car Show

As the name suggests, the Annual Chazziz Valentines Car Show is held on the weekend closest to Valentines Day. This year's event filled the allotted space at the Roberts Center convention hall. The show is advertised to be "open to anything with wheels" and the cars and trucks that rolled in for this event proved that point.

On display for this one were a few great C1 and C2 Vettes, a 1956 Ford Thunderbird, a 1957, a 1951 Ford two door, a great looking Model A, a 1966 Dodge Coronet 50, and a 350 Chevelle.

Minis, Morgans and Midgets

In order to post pictures of all of the makes of cars on display at this past season's British Car Day I have to lump three into one group. Today I have pictures of Minis, Morgans and Midgets that were on the lawn during the show.

A Triumph In Exports

One of the best selling and perhaps most highly exported Triumphs was the TR6. With production running from 1968 through 1976 nearly 95,000 were built. Of these, over 86,000 were exported. This means that the TR6 is more common in the US than in Britain. Powered by a zippy inline six engine and featuring sporty good looks it is little wonder why this car was so popular.

The First TRs

The story goes that executives at Triumph wanted a sporty car that could compete against the Morgan. They made a couple of experimental models and from those came what would be known as the TR2. First shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1953 the TR 2 set the standard for the TR series for many years. The TR 2 was quickly replaced by the TR 3 in 1955. the TR 3 stayed in production through 1962.
