Roger Williams was born in 1940. Aircraft became his first love, and he joined the de Havilland Aircraft Company where he quickly added motor cars to his list of prime interests. During the ensuing six years he not only completed his apprenticeship and studies, but built two Ford-based 'specials'. Family and career interests took pride of place for the next few years, but in 1986 he started his own consultancy business which allowed him to restore numerous MGBs, a Triumph TR6 and a Triumph Stag, and to write two MGB books
This is in many ways essential reading if you are contemplating the purchase of your first TR5 or TR6, even if you have no plans to buy a restoration project. That's because of the down-to-earth buying advice, which can be read in conjunction with the restoration chapters to help you assess the level of work needed to cure any problems. And if you do plan to get your hands dirty, then this book is packed full or real world advice on restoration and maintenance, the ideal companion to a workshop manual." Triumph World"A minor expense in the whole purchase project. If the purchase is successful the book can be a useful future reference. If it is unsuccessful then the general advice for purchasing will be useful for any car purchase." Triumph Sports Owners Club, Queensland"
