I had long wanted a TR8. I bought this one a couple of years ago after reading “The Last Waltz” in Classic Motorsports. I figured that the demand was bound to go up, and I had better act soon. It’s mostly original, except for a couple suspension mods and a little carb tweaking by the previous owner, a one-time TR8 racer. A little rough around the edges, it’s basically pretty sound. It performs well, has been reliable so far, and is comfortable enough for longer trips. For the time being I’m keeping it in Oregon to drive on family visits and to participate in events like the Portland All British Field Meet.
