Trans-Pennine Triumph Renown
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.
