Seen around town...


A more modern-looking Triumph sports car made its appearance in America in the 1970s. However, quality control problems and a high British pound made people's love affair with it short lived.

Vector: No longer a wedge-shaped would be supercar?


Vector was a line of all-American supercars that failed to get off the ground. In the early 1990s 17 Vector W8's were built for sale to the public. By 1995 the same holding company that was in control of Lamborghini now owned Vector. The new Vector M12 lost its American style and Lambo engines were used. After financial troubles and a return to the original owner, the latest Vector is the WX-8 which is supposed to have more horsepower than a Bugatti Veyron.
