Lucky John Wilson has been presented with a classic TR3; a late one with the better TR4 engine at that, but with the “wasp- waisted” body that always reminds me of a miniature Jag XK120. Don’t you think so?
His expedition to bring it from Ohio to NM was more arduous than planned. He had to tow the pristine little jewel, with its sky blue body and dark blue leather seats, in a closed trailer (and into a headwind) to protect it. Halfway across Iowa, the tow vehicle died a most definitive death. John had to buy an old but very clean Suburban, not a car I associate with him, to complete the trip.
I think it was worth it:
I lent him a proper English tweed cap for his “image”, and will hit up Johnny UK, who got me mine, for one for John.
