Paris MkV 1973 Triumph TR6 Special Edition

June 10, 2015

 

Behold the Paris MkV 1973 Triumph Special Edition!  An out of the ordinary request for a unique customized Paris MkV turntable that we could just not refuse. Here is why we were so proud and enthusiastic about this special request:

 

 “Why blue to match a TR6? When I graduated from Engineering at the UofM in '73 I bought a brand new TR6 even before I started working on the strength of an offer of employment letter and my Dad co-signing a bank loan. It was a graduation gift to me from myself, and Triumph called the colour French Blue. It was a fun car to drive, and the rumble from the exhaust when you take your foot off the gas pedal is the best exhaust sound ever, but, alas, I sold it in '76. I'm retiring June 30th next year and, because we're re-modeling our kitchen and family room this Fall and because an upgrade from my 11 year old Rega P3 is the last piece to complete the upgrade of my he-man system, I've decided to give myself a retirement gift one year early. And what better gift than a Paris turntable - I started my career as a Professional Engineer with a blue TR6 and it just seemed appropriate to retire from it with a blue turntable.“
