THE CAST OF CHARACTERS

1968 TR250 Rallye Car, Comm. No. CD1733L, Owned by TRF,
Triumph Racing Green
Charles purchased this car through an advertisement placed by the former owner in
the Pittsburgh Press newspaper in 1983.  It was painted white then, and it sported a red
bonnet stripe.  Various junky accessories had been installed, and these were
immediately removed.  Charles drove the car for a couple of years, and then a frame-up
restoration was performed, starting in autumn 1985, with the idea of entering it in One
Lap of America, an 8,000-mile rallye that ran literally a lap around the country  The car
was entered in "One Lap" three times in all.  In 1986, Ken McPhail, was the co-driver;
in 1987, it was Larry Rigo, a college friend of Charles's; and in 1988, it was Bill Sohl,
a long-time friend and a VTR President.
The TR250 was rebuilt several times for the "One Lap" over three years, and it
provided many adventures for Charles and for the co-drivers.  It was also driven cross
country to attend various VTR conventions and Triumphests.  For 1988, it was fitted
with a Surrey top, and the wheels and bonnet stripe were painted in orange with
Triumph Racing Green as the body colour.  A magazine of the time stated that this
colour scheme gave the car an agricultural look.  The TR250 rallye car is currently in
storage at The Roadster Factory, resting and awaiting another exciting chapter.
