A Mostly British Obsession

Mum’s First Ride

triumphterrierMy mother’s very first motorized transport, back in Cheshire in the mid-fifties, was a brand new Triumph Terrier. She has many tales of wrapping herself in newspaper in an effort to stay warm, and of pulling into petrol stations only to find her hands were so cold she couldn’t operate the pump or make change! She only had the machine for about a year before selling it and buying a Mini Countryman wagon as her first four-wheeled transport.

P.S. I’d like to find an example of either machine to restore one day, so…
