About the Author

Roger Williams was born in 1940. Aircraft were his first love, and he joined the de Havilland Aircraft Company after leaving school, but quickly added motor cars to his list of prime interests. He completed his apprenticeship and studies, and built two Ford-based 'specials' before family and career interests took pride of place. However in 1986 he started his own consultancy business, which allowed him to restore numerous MGBs, a Triumph TR6 and a Triumph Stag. An acknowledged expert in his field, he has written several books covering both Triumph and MGB models, including titles for Veloce’s SpeedPro series, Enthusiast’s Restoration Manual series, and The Essential Buyer’s Guides.

Praise For Triumph TR7 & TR8: The Essential Buyer's Guide

"All the most pertinent points to consider are here including model variants … Williams then gets down to the gritty business of inspecting and evaluating. He even tells you how to do a 15-minute appraisal when you go looking at examples. Good, no-nonsense stuff." – Classic Cars

"The perfect place to start wising up on the range. Author Roger Williams reviews key inspection points of the models, plus values, spares and buying at auction in this handy, pocket-sized A5 format." – Classic & Sports Car

"Given the numerous maladies that can potentially lurk within, that can turn Harris Mann's famous wedge-shaped wonder into a pile of rust, you'd be positively certifiable if you didn't fork out the meagre £10 being asked for this handy guide if considering buying one." – Gay Classic Car Group
"It contains 64 pages with loads of photos and details of things to look for when buying a car. It is a quick step-by-step guide to finding the right TR7/8 without going too much into boring, technical details." – TR Driver
