The award is presented by the Chief of the Seaside Highland Games, Chief John Lowry, and the winning automobile is the featured vehicle at that year's Seaside Highland Games British Car event.
1954 Triumph TR2
The TR2 was introduced in 1953 as Triumph's bid to capture some of the budding sports car market in the U.S.A. A total of 8,636 TR2s were built between August 1953 and September 1955, a large fraction of which were exported to these shores. The TR2 is widely recognized as the car that "started it all" for Triumph in the U.S. The TR2′s combination of lively performance, good looks, and reasonable price made it a strong seller and led to the very successful TR line that we all know and love. The sleek fender lines and very low, cut out doors invited drivers to leap into the driver's seat rather than struggle to locate the interior door handle, which was the only door handle provided. A pretty cool feature if you were an Ivy League jock vintage 1955.
