Trans-Pen­nine Tri­umph Renown

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Why all the fuss about driv­ing a Land Rover to Scot­land? ( CCW, 25 Oc­to­ber)? Isn’t that what they were built for?

A few weeks ago, my wife and I drove along the high­est mo­tor­way in Eng­land (the M62) to a 1940s event in Pick­er­ing, York­shire, in our 66-year-old Tri­umph Renown. Then we drove back again. This is the fourth year we have made this jour­ney, and we’re plan­ning to do the same trip next year.

The many smiles and waves from other mo­torists that we re­ceived as we passed over the Pen­nines made us proud to be driv­ing an English clas­sic car that was hand-built, prob­a­bly by the same men who had worked on air­craft dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, us­ing some of the same skills and ma­te­ri­als.
