To all members of the Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club, and also to all interested parties, (who can feel free to apply for membership of our club as members or associate members).
Welcome to our new format website. My thanks go to AD Durnin, Matthew Hall and to Graham Shipman, for their tremendous effort to get the new site up and running.
Our worldwide club, is dedicated to those who own, or have an interest in pre-1940 Triumph cars, (inclusive of the Vale and Vernon Crossley marques which are based on the Triumph mechanical parts).
The club is not large, some 275 members, but is very friendly and extremely supportive to those who need information about, or require parts, (exc. North America for safety critical parts) for their Triumph cars.
We disseminate information about our activities through the medium of 6 two monthly magazines per year, and through our club website, which is being updated as I write. An annual rally with award presentations, a spares, regalia and library shop, a dinner and usually a driving rally, takes place annually in June/July.
Regional Representatives, in the UK and in other countries of the world organise various more local meets, often based within the aegis of another organisation. Links occur with other organisations e.g. the VSCC, and we frequently send 10 or so cars to major activities, within that organisation.
Activities are often recorded, and pictures with information, sent to the relevant motoring press.
We have just enjoyed the 53rd annual rally since the Club was formed, with 33 Triumph cars present from the UK and Europe, to celebrate another successful year.
Support can be given to identify barn-find Triumph vehicles and/or parts, and help can be given to confirm original registrations to the relevant authorities.
A major programme is underway to retrieve records of all Triumphs ever built and/or registered, as most records were lost in the blitz on Coventry during the war. To this end, anyone with Triumph reminiscences or records or photographs is encouraged to contact us.
I hope from this brief introduction, you will continue to watch our new website as it develops, and please communicate with us as appropriate.
