Wedge Salad: 1979 Triumph TR7

This next car comes as a tip from Ryan M who writes: I have an affinity for these things, as a burgundy red TR7 (not this one) is what my woefully-unprepared-for-parenthood parents decided to drive me home from the hospital in. Riding in what passed for a car seat in 1981, on my mom's lap on the passenger side.  The 80's were a different time... but I digress. This one looks adequately sorted, though I think it presents better in pictures than it does in person. I've seen this exact vehicle a few times at local car shows, and can confirm it runs decently and presents OK, keeping in mind its a ~40 year old British car for under $4k.  Find this 1979 Triumph TR7 offered for $3900 in Rodgers, AR via craigslist.

Vermillion Red 79 TR7. Fun to drive, needs TLC. Recently rebuilt engine, air conditioner needs work. Interior needs attention, tear in drivers seat, needs new carpet
