1954 TR-2

Owners: Jim & Sharon Wortsman
Commission No. TS2032L
Purchased June 1997

We called it gleaming green last time, and now it’s even shinier. Jim tells the story:

“When my car was car of the month in September 1999, I indicated that I was going to have some work done on the car. Well, it ended up being a one-and-a-half year frame-on restoration.
“Ron Harrison, Steve Foster, Bill Sysman and I all worked on various phases of the restoration. It was a pleasure working with these guys, and we had a lot of fun doing it. We actually rolled it out about 2 a.m. the morning of the 2001 South Central Regionals in College Station. Sharon was going nuts having to follow me at speeds of 45 to 60 mph in order to break in the newly rebuilt engine properly.

“Since completion, the car has been a pleasure to drive and has been very dependable. I’ve taken it on multiple rallys and driving trips. It is more fun than ever!”

Jim’s work has paid off with the following awards to date: 1st in Class 2001 – South Central Regional; 2nd in Class – 2002 South Central Regional; 1st in Class 2001, 2002 – Houston All-British Motor Vehicle Expo; 1st in Class 2002 – Round Rock All-British Car Day.
