    British Leyland couldn't build a car to save their mother's life. I had a 1979 Triumph TR7 automatic. I got it used in 1982 as my college graduation present. Worst maintenance ever. Went through 2 starters, 3 alternators, 1 fuel pump, front brakes twice in one year. Coolest looking piece of crap I've ever owned.


    Missing them in 2020

    I bought a Dolly Sprint 20 years ago. A 1976. And its still on the road. Its mint. I no longer own it though. Unbelievably l saw a picture of it on Google images. I loved that car.

    That water challenge was entertaining but I sure hope that that water wasn't wasted. I hope it was reused or something instead.
