1975-1981 Triumph TR7
In its era, several ads extolled the “brash, slashing wedge” body shape of the Triumph TR7 as an example of greater things that were to hit the market. Whatever these ads were talking about, clearly never happened as the TR7 represented the last sports car to come from Triumph. This machine made some headlines during its time, straight from its tartan seats and stylish doorstop-like wedge to the bin engineering parts and British Leyland’s bristling quality control in the 1970s. With years of getting featured in the “bad joke” car list and making its way into many not-so-good lists, the TR7 has stayed cheap and neglected. However, people are still not doing away with the “great things to come” edge as it still wears this title to some point. The recent years have seen the prices slightly increase but it still remains one of the most pocket-friendly sports cars to have ever come from Britain with the now price not being that far off from the original pricing of $4,995 forty years ago.
