    Yes bot those Triumphs are fantastic.............well worth the job !

    Who did the bodywork/paintwork ?

    A guy out in North County Dublin has a yellow one, looks clean, drives her hard too ! I pass him every morning going the other way !

    That might have been me !!! Driving along the M50 ? I use it a few days per week going from Clonsilla to Leopardstown and back - it's still on English plates, so should be easily identifiable until I get it re-reg'd (next week).

    DS, do you park that baby on Bath Avenue occasionally, or is there another shiny black DS doing the rounds?
    There's a couple, I think. Not me anyway except for one or two evenings in my favourite pub Slatteries. It's just not the same with Becks NA, though :)

    my favourite pub Slatteries

    You and me both. Between that and the car, you're clearly a gentleman of some taste and discernment.

    would love to know of any other sprints around only 4 or 5 in club!!
    franksm didnt know you had a sprint? i met you at mounttown the other day, i run the valet business there and own the white Stag OKI557 White Dolomite Sprint and TR7 Conv sometimes parked on the road. I am looking at selling the TR7 at the minute. Have my eye on a TR7V8 in the UK.

    Oh, when MercMad-lad said "yellow" I thought he was on about a yellow Stag, not a yellow Sprint. It's just the Stag that I have.

    I have seen that TR7 ! Was asking about it here the other day.

    Dude, are you any good at putting windscreens in and out ;-) I need it doing, have never done it myself - there's another helpful thread going on here on the topic but... now's not really the weather to learn about it

    I was looking at some stags in a mag latly, their not cheap, the average seemed to be around 10 grand sterling for a tidy one, or were the ones I saw above the average price.

    hi, yes i have had my windscreen out twice, easy to take out with a sharp knife cut the outer part of the rubber then gently press outwards.
    to fit washing liquid string. the hard part is the chrome!!!!!!!!!
    let me know when you need to do it, i will gladly help.

    I was over in the UK last month and was shocked at the price of Stags they have really come up in value. the other shock was most around 8 - 10 k sterling, still needed tidying a few bubbles here and there or filler and nice paint job MADE IF YOU ASK ME.
    a few really nice cars not needing cent put into them they were asking 12-14k plus.
    While thinking about it knowing what it cost me to get my Stag to its standard it would be cheaper for me to have bought a mint one for 14k and saved myself thousands, but where would the fun be in that.
    ANYHOW THATS MY PENNY'S WORTH

    Green-blood, that was a nice one you had, I remember seeing it for sale. If you get another, pm me, we are trying to get an owners club off the ground.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,579 ✭✭✭junkyard


    I have a Carlson one of those sitting on my car lot at the moment, its belonging to a friend of mine who would be interested in joining your club. He's driving another Carlson Saab 900 turbo. Another friend of mine has about seven of eight of them and I'll tell him too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,406 ✭✭✭Gerry


    nice one!


  • Registered Users Posts: 586 ✭✭✭8~)


    My brother has a '90 900, I sold to him a while back. He might be interested if a club gets going. Post details here.

    Nice Corolla there Jason, my father had one in 1977 like the blue 2 dr one in your photo same colour but it war 4 dr and had a different grille.


  • Registered Users Posts: 67 ✭✭Jason_G_KE30


    :D Thanks Junkyard!! The red one is an Irish assembled model, and the blue one below is just one I came across on the net, based in Holland. It has the same colour and type as one I'm hoping to get stuck into in the new year, and it's a slightly more presentable one!! What type of grille did your Father's car have? I only thought the two above were the only ones about at that time?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,579 ✭✭✭junkyard


    It had a series of verticle slots with a C badge in the middle, it was one of the first in Ireland at the time. It was streets ahead of anything else in its class at the time. Great little car.

    ...........where were these assembled .........anyone know ?

    LOVELY CAR, I REMEMBER THEM WELL AS MY BROTHER WORKED FOR A TOYOTA MAIN DEALER IN NEW STR BACK IN THE 70'S. I REMEMBER HIM COMING HOME WITH THEM AS COMPANY CARS. NICE TO SEE THEM AGAIN.

    Hi all

    here is a link to a few pixs of my cars Stag, Dolomite Sprint and TR7, If anyone is interested.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,407 ✭✭✭G Luxel


    That corolla featured is the Mark 3 version,introduced in 74. There was another grille but never available here, had a huge grille, only for japanese market with the wing mirrors. Recently I was in Crete and spotted a few of these cars, but with chrome bumpers with overriders and chrome light surrounds on the rear lights. By the way the C badge is still used today , its the emblem for the corolla only used in Japan and it is actually the outline of the root of the Corolla flower.
