If you’ve never heard the Group 44 GT-6 you should. It along with the 250K are 2 of the nicest sounding Triumphs at full song you will ever hear. Both will be at Mid-Ohio for the Kastner Cup. A don’t miss opportunity if you want to hear some great 6 cyl music.

Those four-bangers make neat noises and are nice, torquey engines but the inline-six is just naturally smooth and sublime.  It is fully symmetrical with a multi-plane crank.  Best of both worlds.

Today hit 50F in Michigan and so I took the TR5 out for an inaugural drive.  I started off timidly, since the engine had just been rebuilt and I always worry I may have done something wrong.  But after 10 or so miles caution was thrown to the wind and I let those 6 fuel-injected cylinders do their thing.  And they did - just amazing!

I am a huge fan of the 4-cylinder Triumphs (I have five of them, after all), but this was sheer hedonism.

And, of course, the thumbs up of the people who obviously thought I was totally mad in a convertible in 50 degrees and the kids with their noses pressed against the windows……

Apart from my beautiful wife and maybe Irish whiskey, driving these cars must be one of life’s greatest pleasures.
