Hi all,

Thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself.

I recently acquired a 1980 Dolomite 1300 found in a barn and will be restoring over the next year or two.

 I look forward to sharing my progress.

Welcome to this Triumph world. That looks like a good car, it looks to be light rust on there. I look forward to more updates. Alan
