Triumph Herald 2000

Welcome to my blog! Originally produced as a way of keeping track of the various car shows I’d attended¬† with my Triumph Herald it has now grown to encompass a collection of other stuff too.

These include a selection of 1960s Triumph sales brochures and a page of ‘interestingly’ modified Herald pics gleaned from around the web over the years (Other Bits). ¬†

It has also been expanded to encompass our matching Viking Fibreline caravan and our Triumph 2500S estate.

Triumph Herald and Viking Fibreline
Our Triumph Herald and Viking Fibreline somewhere in the middle of France on our way to the ECCR in Luxembourg in 2018.

Purchased in 1979 as my first car. My Triumph Herald has undergone two body off restorations over the years and has grown from a 1200 to a 2000. It’s been a great journey, and I’ve had immense fun out of it. Doing the strip at Santa Pod, charity race days at Snetterton, Prescott Hillclimb to name a few and more recently three trips to Europe including Luxembourg towing our matching caravan.


Viking Fibreline Caravan

In July 2016 we purchased a Viking Fibreline caravan, while in good condition overall it had been badly painted by the previous owner, so was stripped down and repainted in matching blue and white.

Our latest addition to the fleet is a Triumph 2500S estate. Part one saw the underside rebuilt, part two saw the top side rebuilt. This is our every day car as well as having the job of towing a slightly bigger classic Sprite Musketeer caravan which is currently undergoing restoration.
