First of all, the DOTS Triumph TR3A we saw yesterday is a '59- at least, many of its parts are from that year- not a '60 as I guessed calculated. But that doesn't matter, because it turns out that the owner is a Jalopnik reader and he's just brought the car to Alameda from Pennsylvania in a wild-eyed, road-food-scarfing, .357-brandishing, 10-day journey. Yes, this road trip manages to counter a lot of stereotypes we might be harboring of breakdown-prone British cars driven by tedious old guys in tweed caps. Did he take photographs for us to enjoy? Did the Stag's V8 suck? Of course he did; follow Vin's adventures in this Flickr set!
