End of Month Hodgepodge (June)

For this month’s hodgepodge, I’ll post pictures from a recent charity car show I attended.  I brought out the Canon T3i and a prime 50mm lens with me.  In doing so, I was not able to capture a lot of full car pictures.  Instead, I focused my attention on the details.

Enjoy a 50mm Crop-frame sensor perspective of some classic cars.

1970 Triumph TR6

Ahhhh, what a glorious car to spot in the morning while drinking a spot of tea. This wonderful British Sports Convertible embodies the beauty of styling from all of the world in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Oh yea, and it’s parked behind an E46 BMW M3 Convertible. What a lovely morning!

From Wikipedia:

The Triumph TR6 (1968–76) is a British six-cylinder sports car and the best-seller of the TR range built by Triumph when production ended in July 1976.

All TR6 sports cars featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market the engine was carburetted, as had been the US-only TR250 engine. Like the TR5, the TR6 was fuel-injected for other world markets including the United Kingdom, hence the TR6PI (petrol-injection) designation. The Lucas mechanical fuel injection system helped the home-market TR6 produce 150 bhp (110 kW) (145 hp DIN) at model introduction. Later, the non-US TR6 variant was detuned to 125 bhp (93 kW), while the US variant continued to be carburetted with a mere 104 hp (78 kW).
