    Re: JRR- Triumph special

    Shouldn't we try to keep this in the club, can the club afford to buy it, could we 'group purchase' it and get it stored somewhere?

    Derek was asking 1900, I'll chip in 100, plus some small amount for annual storage, if that's a reasonable amount!

    Details and pics here

    My thoughts were if the funds could be raised perhaps a museum like Haynes would possibly be interested.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    The pictures can be seen by clicking the "here" in David's Post yesterday. I would also be willing to donate towards keeping JRR in the Marlin Club, part of the Marlin history. I am still chasing Ernie Warrender for an article about his time working for Marlin at the factory around 1980's history, needs to be kept alive for people to see. Haynes Museum has an area just full of RED cars, I will inquire when next I pass just in case, I know they have cars on loan. David.
