Triumph TR6…or Z06?

TriumphZ06

Firstly, I feel I need to apologise for the amount of LSx builds on the front page, as I generally like to aim for a bit of variety on the site. But hey, if people keep stuffing them into cars in interesting ways, I have to keep featuring them! This one is a bit more than just an engine swap, though, because the owner has transplanted a lot of the underpinnings of a Z06 Corvette into his unsuspecting Triumph TR6. The most significant part of this build is that we learn the owner and builder is actually wheelchair bound, yet this proves no boundary to him as his enthusiasm and dedication to his car shines through, making the most of his situation and enjoying his passion to the fullest. So next time you’re feeling lazy or making excuses about your own project, have a read of this thread. My hat is tipped to you, Sir.

Thanks to Peter for submitting.

    the contour of the fender lips are not flawless. Nice build nonetheless.

    Kinda amazed this just showed up. Cowboy Ray’s 71 TRZ06 has been a great inspiration to me.

    Ray, badass car! The front shot is killer!

    I think that what you have done with that body style of sports car is way cool! But what you did with the running gear is out of this world!!! Great Job.

    That throttle blip during the slow rpm climb is menacing. I can only imagine how awesome the power-to-weight ratio is.
