It's A Long Way For A TR7

In Ontario, and parts east, a car left outside will root into the ground and become iron oxide. I know this first hand.

Jim Ellis and Rob Ockenden came from the Bruce to rescue a Triumph TR7. It was a free former a parts car for a completed TR7. "It has parts, and my kids could use the welding experience", says Jim. I was thinking of turning it into a planter.

There are good parts to be had from good interior pieces down to, hopefully, mechanicals and drive train. For those parts Jim, Rob,with Ken Marchand, with his truck and trailer, made the journey to Don Whitehead`s Bolton shop and then to this TR7.

Thankfully the ground was dry

Crossmember found and hooked

A little steering and a bit of a pull

It came out easily

Next step, the trailer.

Artist Rendition

High trailer with short ramps would not allow the car to clear the bend at the top of the ramp.
Solution, jack up and block the ramps!

And voila! Safe and sound

It just needs to be stuffed with parts

Tie it down and pull up the ramps

And gone!
