iM Feature: Chris’s Triumph TR7

I had the opportunity to shoot Chris’s Trumph TR7 a while ago and finally got the chance to get it up. I have to admit, this isn’t a car you see everyday – in fact, this is a car I have never seen until last year at the Driven car show. I was literally confused and delighted when he rolled in the booth because at first glance, if you don’t know Triumph, then you’re going to wonder what car this is. At second glance, you’ll know the SR20 sitting under the hood is no joke.

Chris has done most of the work himself with the help of various shops around town and the resources he could find – not everybody can help you if they don’t have many parts for it in the first place unfortunately.
