My wife asked me a question I couldn't answer. Were Triumph motorcycles
"owned" by the same company that built the Triumph line of cars, or did they
share a common name?
Originally, Triumph began making bicycles, then motorcycles were added, then
cars. The bicycle and motorcycle lines were sold off in the 1930s.

*Man: Well, no ... It's not so much of a jet, it's more your, er,
Triumph Herald engine with wings.
