Over the past few months, I have noticed considerable correspondence in the motoring press over the qualities of Triumph Stags, which range from the tragic to the eloquent. Only last week, Autocar in its 24,000-mile test wrote in lyrical terms whilst at the same time Motor commented unfavourably on the engine and described the work involved in shoe-horning that from the Rover to fit.
Personally, I suspect that people’s attitude towards the car is largely dictated by whether or not they have had to pay out large sums to keep it on the road! Nevertheless, the fact remains that the car has many enthusiasts, amongst whom I would count myself, yet there appears to he no club, or organisation that caters to their needs.
Perhaps one of your readers knows of a Stag Owners’ Club, in which case I would like to be put in touch. A free interchange of ideas might clear up some of the problems Stag owners have and hence remove the unfortunate name that many of the earlier Stags acquired.
