Random # 182: Triumph TR4/A IRS
Many people regard the car photographed here - a TR4/A IRS (standing for independent rear suspension) - as the pinnacle of the Triumph sports car line-up. They would argue that those models that preceded it lacked grunt and the three TRs that followed, the TR5, TR6 and TR7, lacked the style and charm that made Triumphs special. This is especially true of the often maligned TR7 and its V8 twin, the TR8, which are only now really gaining acceptance.
UMPH won't comment, for fear of offending legions of Triumph fans! However, he will hazard to admit to being a bit of a TR4 fan and will stick his neck well out and confess to having always loved the wedge-shaped TR7 and TR8!
