What we drive: 1969 Triumph TR6

Graham Beale, Ginetta G33 VNT

contemplating the purchase of a British car and the vital parts of that car are in more than, say, two cardboard boxes, your purchase is suspect.

Obviously there are exceptions: The D-type Jaguar comes to mind. Any Aston Martin. Even within the realm of Triumphs, a long-door TR2 might be worth the challenge.

But restoring a basket-case TR6? In a modestly equipped suburban garage, while you’re putting two kids through college?

Fortunately, the logic made sense to my father.

Dad’s no mechanic, but he had gained a measure of technical confidence from a prior TR6 freshening. Seller’s remorse set in after he let it go, so when a coworker spotted the straight, rust-free remains of a 1969 model in a North Carolina salvage yard, the threshold of good judgment disintegrated.

The result was a British Leyland sampler arriving at our Atlanta home on a flatbed trailer one summer evening. I shook my head and considered myself fortunate that I would be heading back to school in Athens, 90 miles away, the following Monday.

4.4Mil Jobs Lost: Goldman To Pay Record Bonuses

Staff at Goldman Sachs staff can look forward to the biggest bonus payouts in the firm's 140-year history after a spectacular first half of the year, sparking concern that the big investment banks which survived the credit crunch will derail financial regulation reforms.
A lack of competition and a surge in revenues from trading foreign currency, bonds and fixed-income products has sent profits at Goldman Sachs soaring, according to insiders at the firm.
Staff in London were briefed last week on the banking and securities company's prospects and told they could look forward to bumper bonuses if, as predicted, it completed its most profitable year ever. Figures next month detailing the firm's second-quarter earnings are expected to show a further jump in profits. Warren...
