Sue and I have just returned from Ballarat in our daily driver 1954 TR2. Thank you to the members for another great experience.

We travelled down with about 8 TRs, and one Mazda. On the way home we had two TRs, and one Mazda.

Over 8 days we covered 1535 miles. Cruising at around 110 km/h the last leg was exactly 350 miles Albury to Sydney with a coffee and a lunch stop.

Average 31.5 mpg, best 32.1 on the freeway coming home with the top and passenger sidescreen in place. The worst 30 mpg nudging it along on country roads around Ballarat.

I checked the car over this morning adding about 700ml of engine oil and about 100ml in the gearbox. It didn't need coolant or brake fluid. Points needed adjusting. One windscreen soft top stud needed refitting and the steering column mount under the dashboard needed tightening.

It is ready to go again.

Not bad for a 65 year old car.
