May 24, 2012 - 1946 Triumph Slowpoke



From a Yahoo article titled The Ten Slowest Sports Cars of All Time.

This is how "fast" this 1946 Triumph 1800 is: 0-60: 34.4

Compared to the 1950 Crosley Hot Spot: 0-60: 26.3



Quote:
Why we want one anyway: With its bosomy, wood-framed aluminum body and top-down charms, going fast isn't really the point anymore. We'd love to take one out to the country for some true motoring. Like a sir.

(What's a Crosley? Never heard of it.)

(Oh, this is a Crosley. Cool!)

I think that nowadays we see 'sports cars' as fast cars but that certainly wasn't always the way. In earlier times sports cars were vehicles used primarily for leisure, for fun, maybe only at weekends - not the owner's everyday car. It wasn't really much about what car-folk call 'sporty' these days.

Me, I am and always have been a huge fan of motorsport and I don't care what kind of Ferrari or Lamborghini you have - if all you do is drive around town posing in it you don't have a sports car. As far as I'm concerned it only becomes that when you use it for sport!

I guess it falls to me who had one to point out it was a Crosley Hot Shot, not Spot.
Very fun litlle auto and popular to make home made racers out of.

It's a beautiful beast.
I don't mind the speed, as long as it's a smooth ride.
