Ken Mumford

Recommended Posts

I have some sad news regarding Ken and his health which i want to share with you.

A lot of TR owners will know Ken Mumford very well, as a friend, as a provider of a wealth of all early TR knowledge and advice, as a finder of unobtainable parts and of course re chroming our bumpers and shiny bits.

Ken has had a fall and has injured himself and is for the foreseeable future stuck in hospital.

I visited him yesterday and he is tired, in pain but in good spirits.

He talked at length about his life restoring (and breaking) TR's from the late 50's when he used to buy TR2s and 3s from Triumph which had been damaged on the production line or when they had actually fallen off the back of a transporter on their way to a dealer!

Even though he was in great pain talking about his cars cheered him up, just as it cheers us up when we talk about our cars.

What I am hoping is that if you know Ken, could you send him a get well card or better still if you live near enough to Watford go and pay him a visit.

He spoke so well of all the people he has known both those who have passed and those still with us so please send him a card.

Could someone copy this to the members area as I cannot do so.

I wont publish his contact details here but  pm me and i will reply.

Thanks,

Tom.
