TR5 owner, 30 years today?

Taken at Rousham Park STIR (Standard Triumph International Rally) in the late 70's.

At least I think it's today? I still have the receipt somewhere at home for the day I picked up my TR5 back in 1977. Bought at the tender age of sixteen for the princely sum of 650 notes with tax & test, read it and weep! Imagine a nine year old 150bhp sportscar which was still one of the fastest things on the road in 1977 and approaching your seventeenth birthday (and your driving test). My first years insurance which was third party only (no fire & theft) cost me the same as the car. How I didn't kill myself in that first years motoring I'll never know!
