British cars look good red

I went for a walk on the beach with my youngest son and came back to the truck to see I had new neighbors:

There were about 15 or so Triumphs in the small beach parking lot. As different as the Land Rover is from the Triumph, they just look good together. Especially in red.

I talked with the owner of the '59. He was admiring my Defender when I walked from the beach and gave me some info on the All British Car Meet. They were touring the island and hitting the wineries for tastings.

I was lucky to have my camera on me (other than the iPhone.)

I thought I heard red was the only color option that cost more on the series trucks. My series III is red.

That first photo is great! My friend just finished rebuilding his series III for his wife. It looks so good in red.
