Today 34 years ago 't Kreng was first registered. At that time she had been standing at a dealership for a year or so. According to her VIN number she must have come off the line in Solihull somewhere in April 1981. And while trawling through my photographs I was reminded of the fact that on the 4th of March it was exactly 10 years ago that I joined Club Triumph. Completely forgot that one, time certainly flies when you're having fun, thanks so far CT. Some pictures from the archives showing the car's various guises over the years;

And two interesting pictures of two sister cars. As their licence plates have an ascending sequence it is safe to say they were registered together ...
