"TRIUMPH--GLORY STILL EXISTS" BUMPER
STICKERS AND COLLECTIBLE COFFEE OR
"From TRF's TR250 Rallye Car of the 1980's"
Many people think this line is from Triumph factory advertising, but actually TRF
used it first in 1988. The words were taken out of context from a book by Richard
Bach named "Biplane" in which the author trades his modern airplane even-up for an
antique biplane which he flies across the U.S. In the book, he states that he did this so
that people would know that "Glory Still Exists." That is the same reason that I drove
my TR250 in three One Lap of America rallyes in 1986, 1987, and 1988. Bill Sohl,
known to many Triumph enthusiasts accompanied me in 1988, and we had a blast. The
bumper sticker is orange on green to match the car which was racing green with orange
alloy wheels and an orange bonnet stripe.
I had the idea of making a mug from the bumper sticker design. I think the final
design is both striking and elegant, and I feel sure that TRF customers will like it too.
The mugs will be numbered and signed by me on the bottom. For those of you who
collect these things, signing and numbering will provide a bit of personalization. I
hope that you will enjoy using these mugs as much as I have enjoyed producing
