“Our” 1971 TR6 became part of the family with the help and encouragement of “Digger” Davitt. I’d known Digger for quite a few years prior and although partial to TR3’s he fostered all things Triumph. In fact, we became acquainted due to his love of Triumph cars and my British motorcycle affliction.
The purchase of the car is a unique story that you need to ask me about.
Since obtaining the car I’ve tried to “improve” it by installing Herman’s trans kit, a supercharger, roller rockers, alum flywheel, Toyota calipers, …………………….
It’s a work in progress.

    Hi John,
    I just googled my dad’s name and found your post. (I’m the eldest daughter of Digger Davitt.) So nice. Dad did love the TR club and the TRs. I always thought it funny that he didn’t have one for his every day car. Anyway, I’m thinking of resuming a blog I started about his life. I thought you might want to take a look at it.
