  1. Absolutely not! Still tucked safely away in my Dad's garage ready for the next adventure, he's not allowed to sell it!
  2. All the cool kids grow up in the back of Doves ;-)
  3. We have not at any time profiled a business called "TR Match" either in TR Action or our e-Newsletters. We have a club member that matches that name and also someone of that name who pays a trade fee for their classified adverts online. At present that is as far as the association with TR Register goes - for the avoidance of doubt. For those who missed it, Mick Forey made the following very clear: Ian Cornish has raised his concerns with the management team who will investigate. We have not received any formal complaints about the aforementioned individual or business from
  4. The dates in the link above are correct at the current time, as is the venue.
  5. The photographer who took this (me) was actually hanging out the back of a TR6, also competing, at the time!! Great fun !!
  6. I'll really miss his friendship and support. He was always willing to help check facts or give an insight when needed. A friendly chap and a true TR hero. A full tribute will appear in 329: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2021/04/0266/RIP-Kas-Kastner-19282021
  7. Hi Russell, you can express interest in a plot via www.triumphandmgweekend.com under trade. Or email Jo Whitty on office@tr-register.co.uk. You will be contacted when plots have been released for booking. I understand the working party are planning the layout for these to increase space to accommodate the MG traders, so will be announced soon.
  8. Hi Conrad, The MGCC are the 'original' MG Car Club, based out of Kimber House in Abingdon next to the site of the old factory at Cemetery Rd. They were once a part of the MG factory and to this day have a close strategic partnership with MG Motor. In 2020 they remarkably turned 90 years old and have 55,000 worldwide members with around 12,500 in the UK. So, around twice the membership size. The are a not for profit ltd. like TR Register. The MGOC are a successful parts business with a club as an extension of their activities based out of Swavesey nr Cambridge.
  9. Happy Birthday John, hope you had a great day!
  10. Thanks everyone, An unusual birthday being locked down, but I was teated to a superb cake !! plus a heap of lovely wishes and cards. I spent the day on TR Action 327 and the evening on fitting a new steering column bush to the TR followed by tucking into my ales and whisky selections!! I used to think 37 was ancient, yet here I am !!! Thank you for your birthday wishes!
  11. My pleasure, no problem - found it eventually!!
  12. Congratulations to all our wonderful members as TR Register won Best Contribution to Charity this evening at the Virtual Classic and Sportscar Awards for our Triumph Over COVID-19 campaign which raised £6,500 for the NHS Charities through the sale of our Triumph Over COVID-19 rally plates. A massive well done to everyone who bought a rally plate and sent us their pictures in during the lock down. This award is for all of you! Also, TR Action Magazine was singled out as runner up in the Category of Best Magazine of the Year, citing its exciting new design and rich content as a reason
  13. H Paul, Great to hear from a fellow Rutlander - I have my optional MOTs at Halls Garage, Morton, Bourne. They are an MG specialist but know all British sports cars well. https://www.hallsgarage.co.uk/ Also - no personal experience but we have RH Classics on our patch at Melton: https://www.rhclassics.co.uk/ Post-COVID - make sure you get along to Camb Followers local group meets, Tracy is doing a great job there and also Leicester Group who are also very vibrant and active: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/group/camb-followers https://www.tr-register.co.uk/
  14. Hi Kevin, If you re-joined last week, then your next magazine will be 326 (Dec/Jan) as 325 had already been despatched at the beginning of November. However, drop a note to office@tr-register.co.uk asking if Jo can send you one of our over stock copies and she'll put in the normal post box for you.
  15. I thought he was good in 'My Family' ! Robert Lindsay that is....
  16. Damn! I missed a trick there, that would have been much funnier! Forget all the 70s TV references, their lost on me - born 1984 - I want to see a photo of your TR5 adorned with the new 'print at home' rally plate fixed on with Sellotape or even better you wearing the branded blindfold in readiness??
  17. Hi David, Sure - I used the poly versions of the remote housing bushes: https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-UKC854POLY transformed the gear shift. ALthough, I used the Superpro ones from Robsport, seemed better quality to me. Also, worth checking this isn't mashed: https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-UKC9338
  18. Well, the plate was never intended to be a historical document of every TR model ever made, but rather to roughly represent each design era of the main production models in an aesthetically pleasing way to look nice on people's cars. Originally the 3A wasn't there either, but it didn't look right with 4 cars and we were going for the v-shape behind TS2 look. So, we added in a 3A which, with that wide mouth grille, is the most graphically distinguishable as 'different' when you look at a glance. Then TS2 is white and that looked wrong too, so we went with eggshell from MVC575 as the "firs
  19. Great tip ! I did the same with mine. Another one is don’t forget the metal spacers that pass through the bushes and also to renew the cup in the gear stick socket - the new poly remote bushes make that gear shift so much nicer!
  20. I'm guessing from a hunch based on an interview I once recorded, that your son's name is Anthony? ;-)
  21. Hi All, Thanks for your patience whilst I have been rolling out the latest updates. This has been the most significant one in a while and whilst the release notes warn you about some elements that will change , you never really know how it is going to roll - out fully until you put it live. The first major job is to back everything up in case something falls over, that in itself with the massive size of this forum, is a big job! But, the early issues have mainly been fixed now and Ill tidy up any left over niggles in the next few days as they come to light. Enjoy the refreshed

    TR8

    Hi , Looks fantastic! Unsure of the figures made with a sunroof, not sure it was recorded in the VUN number so it might be difficult to trace that number accurately. The registrars would know better than I, you can find their details in he back of TR Action Magazine. As for the cylinder heads, all V8Tuner's products used to be good and have used them for many parts over the years. I believe they closed down earlier this year and am not sure if they will re-open any time soon.
  23. Sad news that Silverstone Classic has been cancelled. Full statement on our news pages: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2020/05/0236/Silverstone-Classic-cancels-30th-anniversary-event We are receiving a high level of enquiries on this at present. Can I ask members to please not contact the TR Register office for refunds on tickets and to direct all correspondence to the organisers Silverstone Classic.
  24. Sunday 26 April 2020 would, under normal circumstances, have seen thousands of historic vehicles take to the roads across the UK to celebrate the season opening FBHVC National Drive It Day. However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, activities that involve taking a historic vehicle out on the road specifically for the purposes of Drive it Day, have had to be abandoned. All enthusiasts are now urged to stay at home on 26 April 2020 and not partake in any non-essential travel for Drive it Day. Instead, the FBHVC invite you to get involved in a nationwide social media campaign to spread posi
  25. I would suggest : a) Reboot as described above b) Ensure you are logged in c) Ensure your iPad / Safari has installed the relevant updates. To find these, open the App store , select updates and just allow to update all. Then under General settings also update you IOS. The forum software is constantly updated to ensure it keeps up with the new releases and requirements from browsers, but sometimes that means that the older versions get left behind.
