TR Sighting!

Ran across this one in the parking lot of Menards on Manchester, between I-270 and MO 141.   Got a brief glimpse of the driver before he entered the store; Mark and Andy in SLTOA have yellow TR6s, but this guy didn’t look like either of them.  A mystery…

BTW, the TR6 had period-correct Missouri plates for 1974.


No Polar, Plenty of Bear


In fact, the Bear even made the drive this year!  A total of 24 cars – a mix of Triumphs, MGs (thanks MG Club of St Louis members), BMWs and a couple of other brands – great weather, great route and a fine party afterwards.  All in all, a fine way to start the driving year!

Polar Bear Mod 1

Head’s up! The starting location and time for SLTOA’s Polar Bear Run this Sunday (11 Feb) has changed slightly.  The meet point is now the Mobil station on MO 94 at Thoele Plaza, immediately north of Fox Hill Rd.  Show time is 9:30 AM, the cars roll at 10 AM.

AND, the weather still looks reasonable (well, for January): mostly cloudy (hope for an improvement to partly cloudy), high of about 37.

See you there; the bear’s expecting you.


One Week Until Polar Bear


Sunday, 11 February, meet at the Mobil on MO 94, right side, north of MO 370 at 10 AM for a drive through St Charles County, ending in a gathering at an SLTOA member’s house.  Top-down LBCs and their owners/pax are highly encourage to participate (weather forecast is for high in the mid-30s, partly cloudy, sounds great!) but bring any car and join in on a guaranteed good time.
