    Jack's Triumph goes to a concours

    To start with, if you spend much time on the East Coast of the U.S., you know about the Greenbrier. It bills itself as "America's Resort". It was built in 1918, is located in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia and generally caters to the D.C. crowd. It also hosts the PGA Tour FedEx Cup golf championship event as well as the Greenbrier Champions Tennis Classic. High-end stuff... so they decided that they needed to add a concours d'elegance to their yearly schedule. The inaugural event was last weekend, May 4-6. Here's a photo of the Greenbrier's main building.


    So, my buddy Jack has this Triumph GT-6 that he's owned since the dawn of time. It was originally his dedicated autocross car but got retired from that many years ago due to the arrival of newer, more competitive rides. The GT-6 is now babied and lives a very good life in a snug, warm garage. Long story short, Jack decided to enter it in the Greenbrier Concours. He sent me the attached photo, but I haven't talked to him yet... I'm sure that if he'd won something, he would have texted me, so all I have to offer is this shot of the Triumph on the show field.

      Essentially yes, however the Spitfire never had the straight 6 the GT-6 had. I can't see the pics either but I'm hoping it's a MkII as that's my favourite.

        Sorry about the photos. They showed up when I wrote the post and in the preview. I guess they disappeared after I hit the blue button... More love from me to vBulletin...
