Motorsport Magazine from 1974

I picked up a copy of an old Motorsport Magazine on Sunday at Newark Autojumble, mainly because there is an advert showing my old TR5 For sale.

There are some great old adverts in the magazine too, here's a few look at the prices of the Triumph Cars listed for sale!

Gary. If you manage to get hold of the 2 TR5s I’ll buy both off you now for £1,270 and I’ll give you an immediate profit by throwing an additional 10 Shillings and 6 pence at you! I Reckon we could round this deal up tomorrow at Silverstone!🤞

My old hacks back in the day included Mk1 Mini Cooper “S”. Mk 1 Lotus Cortina. Mk1 Escort. Datsun 240Z. Vauxhall Droopsnoot Sportshatch. Mk2 Vitesse. Mk1 Astra GTE. Amongst others. 
Like everyone else says “Hindsight is a wonderful thing”.

I Will bring the cash with me tomorrow!

I love old motoring magazines; I used to buy any that featured Triumphs, such as the launch of the Herald or various roadtests, and the adverts are superb. So too are the letters. 

"I really would like to complain about the price of antifreeze rising from 1 / 6 d to 2d this weekend. It's going to hit the everyday motorist in the pocket. Major J Humpfries (Ret'd)"

In Motor magazine from 1965 they price the Herald at £592 with an estimated value after 2 years of £410. What about the value after 60 years??? :)
