That looks great! There appears to be a little bit of early Aston Martin DB4 in there.

I like to roast my own coffee beans. I buy the green unroasted beans online and roast them to my liking using a hot air popcorn popper. Pretty easy to do. It creates a lot of smoke so I do it outdoors. Here's my crude setup.    


My mom had that same yellow colander when I was a kid.  Dad put it in the camp cookery box ("chuck box") that he designed and built and we used it on our camping trips.

Awesome!  Love me some old Triumph!
My first car was a TR4A.  Followed by a TR6.  
Always wanted to drop a mazda rotary in one of those!  That would be FUN!

I had a rubber-bumper MGB a million years ago - a really fun little car! Never had a Triumph of any kind but would like a Triumph bike.

Thanks. It has a beefed up TR6 engine/transmission in it so she's a bit of a hot rod. All kinds of fun to drive except, like a motorcycle, you have to watch out for cars not seeing you. 
Rotaries go right in but are getting rare. The hot ticket these days is a Honda or Toyota 4. But then you lose that silky smooth straight six feel. There are even some motorcycle engines and I know of at least one snowmobile engine being put in these.
