My Triumph, Cool, Cheap And Lots Of Fun — Performance:- It's a 13/60 convertible the 13 stands for the 1300cc engine and the 60 for the horse power so that's enough said about the performance other than to say it feels a lot faster than it is!! Build quality:- It's nearly 40 years old, so build quality quality can't be that bad! Although it's had a bit of work done...like a complete restoration in the early 90's and a fair bit done since I bought her in 2001 including convertion to unleaded, steering and front suspension rebuild, complete breaking system rebuild etc etc....... Appearance:- Designed by Michelloti and the coolest car on the Planet! I mean it. Proof? Well, I was parked next to a DB9 the other day and a small goup of people gathered and were discussing the car...Yes, My car, not the DB9! Cost of ownership:- Cheap as chips!! £3k to buy a top notch example and all parts are plentiful and cheap but probably best to know what a spanner is! Fun Factor:- Oh yes! in spades! everybody looks and everybody wants to talk...

Pros: Looks great Fun to drive and fun to tinker with

Cons: It's 40 years old, so maybe not as reliable as a modern but that just adds to the fun!

My First Love — It was my first car - I bought it in 1982 - it was already ancient and with a rocker cover full of mayo. But is was rear wheel drive, turned on a sixpence and with skinny tyres it would flick its rear out at every opportunity - much more satisfying than my mum's Metro. It lasted 8 months until its MOT - which it failed of course - rust. Cost me £140, sold it for £60 - I would like a go in another to see how it compares - reckon I might be shocked

Pros: turning circle, rear wheel drive, engine access

Cons: engine was so small you needed a microscope to find it, colour (brown) and rust

Triumph Herald A Car For All Seasons By Chris

The 1147cc engine is not exactly a thrill a minute although the later model (engine prefix GD) leaps up to 50bhp, a useful addition with no loss of mpg. All triumph herald models are prone to poor ha... Read More
