Goodbye Ugly Pig! :-(

Saturday morning saw me saying goodbye to my Triumph Mk1 estate affectionately known as 'Ugly Pig'. (The front part of the number plate was UGP)
Due to severe corrosion, it was stripped for spares and the remainder sent for scrap.
It was a real shame because these cars are becoming quite rare now, but this was sadly beyond economical repair.
It did yield plenty of useful parts though including: Engine, gearbox, differential, power steering, anti-roll bar, PI Clocks, PI 2-speed wiper system, 2 rear doors, interior, petrol tank, two good bumpers, tow bar and five good wheels and tyres.

I was still sorry to see it go though. I was planning to do the Club Triumph round Britain run in this car until I started finding out just how rotten it was underneath! Still, there's now a space in the garage for another Mk1 to go in . Shall I start looking??????? :-)
