Award Shortlist

A few weeks ago I went along with a friend to a Triumph get-together day. Taking photographs was a good excuse not to muck in with the waxing and polishing! This is a Dolomite Sprint, it could put most boy racers to shame in the Traffic Lights Grand Prix, with Terry Wogan blaring out the window instead of drum n' bass or whatever it is they listen to; with all the retro coolness of Rubik's Cubes and hula hoops (with genuine furry dice hanging off the rear-view mirror); and is a regular runner at over 20 years old.

Great old car, I remember it well. I owned a Triumph 2.5 PI with a real sun roof which folded back to make it almost a convertible, great quality too.

The Dolly Sprint, a great piece of kit; so long as you kept it maintained. Wish you'd caught the cool 'pie' status light in the dash.

Its a shame I'm too young to remember the Dolomite!!

Nice shot Col. Like the dof and composition.
