Welcome to the North East Area site of the Triumph Sports Six Club. Club meetings are informal and not just car obsessed (but if you've got a problem, we will probably be able to help). We organise runs around the north east, usually on Sundays, have displayed our cars at shows in the area (they don't have to be concourse, and entry is normally free if you bring the car for the public to look at), attend other areas weekends and organise our own camping weekend. Anyone is welcome to attend and become involved in the area, a friendly welcome is guaranteed.?xml:namespace>

Apparently the White Vitesse is from Washington.
Also Joe was approached by a bloke with an MG Midget who'd bought a hard-top, which turned out "to be for a Spitfire". It has opening quarterlights (in the rear, presumably?!), the seller reckons it's quite rare, needs paint, wants £150 ono. It's in Horden. Name & phone number, please contact Joe by email

A couple of cars are for sale at the moment;
Joe has found it local to Morpeth:
2-litre Mk2 Vitesse Convertible on a 'J' plate. PROJECT CAR in need of complete restoration.
Originally Damson, now mainly in red, but will need full paint.
Looks solid enough, 60% - 70% complete car, Engine turns by hand, gearbox, diff, hood all present but will need wiring loom, repairs to seats, etc., Photo's on request. Needs a trailer to transport.
Couple of engine's, described as "13/60 and possibly gearbox to go with it" and "Spitfire engine, possibly Mk3".
Tow bar fitting, to suit Herald or Vitesse; uses a strengthening plate in the wheel well; the type where you don't need to cut the rear bumper section.
Any interest, let Joe know and he will pass details on to the seller.
Another Vitesse has come up for sale, local to Middlesbrough:

Chris Fish has also let us know about a car that has come up for sale, as it appears to be a sound working car he is obviously not interested, details below:
Herald 12/50 1966 Wedgwood Blue over Gunmetal two tone car.
Car is in standard unmodified condition and very original throughout. It has a good interior and recent new carpets. Mechanically sound with a replacement dynamo and a negative earth conversion (which could easily be put back). Exterior appears to be in original condition and not repainted, so has a few minor dings after 45 years. Door bottoms suffer the usual corrosion and need some attention, as do the edges of the sun
roof, however this is water tight. The car is currently taxed and MoT’d and has been used regularly through the summer. Tax due in October but will shortly be renewed. Mot runs until 31st July 2012. Chassis is sound and, although having had some limited welding in the past, is fully undersealed. There is a history file containing various receipts and many MoTs to support possible genuine mileage of approximately 88,000
miles. Car is garaged in Fenham and can be viewed at most times.
Price : £1800 Contact : David (contact number in area email)
