I know we just celebrated our independence from Great Britain, but no amount of patriotism can kill my irrational love for the Triumph TR7.

Former owner of both a TR7 (1979 hardtop) and a TR8 (1980 conv). Man, that TR8 was nice. Even with the v8, the factory set-up was not exactly muscle car powerful. Opening up the exhaust and finding someone who really knew how to tune/balance the Zenith-Stromberg carbs helped a lot.

My TR8 was gold with a tan/brown plaid interior. It was 1980's awesome, in other words.
