We weren't able to drive our Triumph to Tassie as it would be 2,500km drive before getting to the ferry (!) which is a bit excessive for a week-long trip. However, I was pleased to see plenty of Triumphs in our stay.
I saw two tatty white 2500 'Sedans' (ozzie term for Saloon), and then a smart looking "1970s yellow/brown" 2500, which sounded good, had gold coloured alloys and a Mk1 bonnet (unusual?!). I also saw a red saloon sitting rather forlornly under a tree somewhere in the sticks which clearly hadn't been driven for some time, and probably won't be again! The funniest sighting was of a very tidy white TR7 halfway up Mt Wellington in Hobart. I stopped on the way back down the mountain intending to take a photo but was a bit too embarassed when I saw the owners were there ... i'd have looked like a bit of a spod getting out of a crap-box ford hire car and taking picutres!
Here is a view of Hobart from the top of Mt Wellington, though:
The roads were great in Tassie though, you can see why the annual Targa Tasmania is so famous.
This week I've seen two more Triumph saloons in Brisbane - one that I overtook on the way to football training, and then another on my way to work ... I'm starting to think about buying a Trabant, they're far less common ;-)
