In responce to Dale Cook's request for a new name for "Grandfather" I suggest
"Blue Moon" because a LBC that doesn't leak oil only comes along once in a blue
moon (and besides the color is right).
Just because I like the names that my wife and I have given our Triumphs I will
pass on the names of our two:
Frisky: A 1959 TR3A righthand drive with lots of pep. (When I first bought
this car the steering was LOOSE and 3 out of 4 shocks were worthless
with one of the front shocks not connected at the top end.)
Morris: A 1969 GT6+ (that could use a bit more pep.) When I first bought
this car it had a set of badly worn (non-adjustable) Z-S carburators
that caused it to be very unreliable when attempting to accellerate
from the stopped position. (At the time we joked about it's finicky
"eating" habits and the name "Morris" from Morris the cat fame
As far as the sex of LBC's goes, I think that it all depends on the quirks of
the individual car.
