1976 Triumph TR7 from North America
The car is really nice, I love it
Well the car looks awesome nothing has gone wrong with it since I've had it. I've had the car for I guess a year I'm about to turn 16 and my parents bought it for me. I do need to either replace the battery or the battery wires because I'm having to jump it to get it started so I'm thinking it the battery.
I haven't been able to drive it yet, but I can't wait. My parents put a paint job on it for me, it's a pearlesent white to blue. I want to know where to find parts for this car because I want a face car a I believe that I can make it real fast.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just turned 16 also, my sister gave me her Tr7 about 6 months ago, I haven't had a problem with it, she had it about 4 years before me and only had a couple problems with it.

First, please don't worry about making it fast. It's a sports car! Cool! What else do you need? I totaled my TR250 and lost the sight of my left eye due to speed and a hole in the road. Please believe me, it's better to get there a little slower than to not get there at all. Just keep it mechanically up to date and change the fluids at a regular basis and you should be o.k. It's a British vehicle, so it's going to leak, they all do. Keep your suspension tight and your tires aligned also. Good luck and have fun, but also be careful. I've been blind since I was 17. I'm now 52. It's a great car. Have a great time, but please get there (a little slower).

I am a 35 yr old female. My first car at age 15 was the TR7. It was a beautiful red. I have now had a mustang, F150, blazers, suburbans, camry, none will ever top the joy and sheer delight that came from driving my TR7. I loved the eight track tapes. By the time my grandfather gave me the 1976 car it was quite old, but awesome. It got me lots of attention!
