Triumph Herald toots her horn, flashes her headlights and generally says Hi!

I've been watching things here for ages, so thought it was about time I joined. The beeb's message boards surely don't seem to want us, do they? Breathe and you're off topic!

Hiya Herald! in that case, have a weloming blast from my 5 tone Santa Fe steam whistles!
I smiled at your your id when you first joined up. Had a few Heralds in my time, what a turning circle! Nice to have you here...

Hi Triumph, pity it's got 2 too many wheels, nice motor though, especially soft top. Still welcome to the show that never ends, get posting!

Hi T.H.! Very Happy

I saw a Triumph Dolomite Sprinter whilst I was walking to work this morning. It was like being transported, Sam Tyler-like, back to 1973! Cool

Didn't Triumph Heralds use to rust a lot.

I don't think they had a particularly bad name for rusting... old ones tended to have very wavy door skin bottoms and because it was such a big door, they usually dropped in time too.
I think the main worry on an old Herald was the out riggers to the chassis.
They were good little cars imo, but you'd feel every bump in the road because of that rear suspension!

Now Vauxhalls! they were REAL rotboxes.... Rolling Eyes

Don't do it Mark, after my last drive in a Reliant Regal van, I spent 12 weeks in traction in Sheffield Royal Hospital!
