RRTC Saturday Lunch Drive
Jan 20 @ 10:00 am – 1:30 pm

Our Saturday Drive happens the week after our Breakfast Club. We generally meet at 10am and go for a nice drive, ending at some cool restaurant for lunch about noon.

This month we’ll start with a tour of Paul and Jane Higley’s awesome garage. From there, we’ll tour through the back roads north and east of Plano. After a spirited 2 hour (68 mile) drive we’ll arrive in Caddo Mills at an eclectic little dinner know as Bucky’s Café. Their motto is “Service with an attitude.” Delicious hand-made hamburger patties are their claim to fame, but chicken fried steak and even a line of breakfast items are also available.

Start:  10:00 am
Higley Residence
3704 Windmill Court
Plano, TX 75074

Lunch:  ~Noon
Bucky’s Café
2803 Hwy 66
Caddo Mills, TX 75135

Drive Your Triumph Day
Feb 10 all-day
A letter from Rye Livingston, Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club

Dear Triumph Club,

Last year I reached out to as many Triumph Clubs as I could find around the world, encouraging everyone to celebrate Sir John Black’s Birthday on February 10th, the man who bought Standard/Triumph after WWII and built many of the Triumphs we enjoy today.

I received a great response with close to 150 photos sent to me from all over the world: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Finland, UK, across the USA and more.

It’s that time again to send out my request so it can be published on club websites, calendars and newsletters.

The concept is to go for a drive in your Triumph: on a country road, out to lunch, to the market, to work, where ever. Go for a drive alone or with a bunch of fellow Triumph Club members. Take a spouse, buddy, child, grandchild or dog. Go for a drive and then take a photo. The photo is mainly of the car, ideally in a cool spot or in front of a landmark, also in front of a market, hardware store or workplace is all-good.  Then send me the photo with basic info: name and place photo was taken and the year & model of the car. Remember, this is a photo taken on February 10th.

Last year I posted all the photos online, https://ttscc.shutterfly.com/pictures/3178, and a large selection were published in the US national magazine of the Vintage Triumph Register, https://vintagetriumphregister.org.

If you live in part of the world where your car is stored for the winter, or your car is in restoration, you can still participate. Take a photo of the car in the garage and send it in.

I’ve set up a special email address to send photos: driveyourtriumphday@gmail.com.

For an example I’m including a photo I took on February 10th, 2017, in my “work in progress”, or Rat Rod, out for a drive with my dog.
