Tri­umphant re­turn

New Zealand Classic Car - - Behind The Garage Door -

The owner pur­chased this 1973 Tri­umph Stag around six months ago. Over the past few months, he has done a lot of work on the body. How­ever, just be­fore it was to go to the paint shop the Tri­umph V8 mo­tor gave up com­pletely. The en­gine is now un­der­go­ing a full re­build with a lot of help from the Stag Car Own­ers Club.

Some months ago, the owner was given some old copies of NZ Clas­sic Car, one of which — our Au­gust 1994 edi­tion — ac­tu­ally fea­tured his Stag along­side three ex­am­ples. At that time, the car was owned by Mike Kin­mond. Of course, the new owner was able to gain a good in­sight into his car’s his­tory via our fea­ture.

The cur­rent owner says he hopes that, once his Stag is com­pleted, it will go as well as it did back in 1994 — maybe one day it may even ap­pear in NZ Clas­sic Car mag­a­zine again.
