Photos of the Week: Email with Photos from a Customer—"Growing Up Triumph."


While looking at my email this week I found three very cute photos that I want to share, along with an email that makes it clear that Bob Lathrop of Illinois has got his priorities right. I doubt that his son will ever want to ride in an autonomous car...

Good Evening,

I wanted to give you a little glimpse into a customer's life. I read every week about what is happening at TRF and I really enjoy it so I thought I'd share with you how you all help impact our lives. I am 31 now and have grown up with a TR6 at home and a project TR3A. When I was about to graduate high school I bought and fixed up a Spitfire Mk3 that I drove as a second car for 10 years. Then my wife and I decided it was time to start a family. So, the Spitfire left us and I bought a project Triumph Sports 6. Then a TR6 came into our lives that I just couldn't pass up. So now I have two projects and two kids, 4 and 1 year old. My daughter refers to the TR6 as her car and as you can see from the pictures my son enjoys it too. I also sent a couple pictures of him and my wife building a Little Tikes truck this weekend while we started installing a new wiring harness in the TR6. There is always a car build going on at our house. Thank you for being a part of it.
