Drat the Luck!

Dang, yesterday was the perfect day to get the HSD out for a short romp: severe clear and 70 degrees, highly improbable for January but hey….Problem was, between attending a funeral as a member of the choir, followed by lunch, followed by the usual weekend household chores and an early dinner with other family members, the window of opportunity faded all too quickly.  Yeah, the car still has radiator issues, it would’ve been a short drive, maybe just long enough to get up to the Phillips 66 station, top the car off and return home.

Today definitely didn’t provide an opportunity for a drive, will have to wait and see what the weather’s like on 10 February, when Triumph owners worldwide will observe Sir John Black’s birthday.  A week before, on 6 February, the Jaguar Association of St Louis will do a drive, but I’ll be in the camera car in support of the St Louis Sports Car Council’s Gateway Relay.  Another driving opportunity will take place on 19 February: St Louis Triumph Owner’s annual Polar Bear Run.

As for the TR8, the plan remains the same: radiator and hoses replacement in late March/early April, and have the car ready to roll again in time for the resumption of the Boeing Sports Car Club autocross season and Cars & Coffee.  Stay tuned…
