Welcome to the WPTA!

Welcome, we are the Western Pennsylvania Triumph Association; a club dedicated the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of all Triumph Sports Cars. Thanks for stopping by our web site. You are invited to view all our public pages to get a flavor for our club and our membership, and if you are interested, a downloadable membership application is available. First however, let me give you some background on the WPTA, who we are, and what we do.

It started in September of 1977 with founding members Ed Woods and Ed Major placing a simple ad in the Pittsburgh Press newspaper looking for people interested in sharing their enthusiasm for Triumph TR2 and TR3 Sports Cars. From that simple beginning, the club has grown to over 200 members, translating into over 300 cars, since many members can't own just one Triumph. We welcome all Triumph models from the earliest roadster to the last TR8.

Our group is very active. Each month we publish our newsletter, the Dzus Dnuz, pronounced zoos nuz, which if not informative is at least entertaining. Also, throughout the year we have a mix of Triumph related events, some social, others driving, but all centered on the cars. Our social gatherings include seasonal events and monthly meetings to exchange ideas and foster camaraderie. Our driving events are member hosted fun rallies to enjoy the cars and the company of friends. Also, each spring there is a Tune-Up Clinic to help members keep their cars in driving condition. Lastly, since 1980 we have produced "British Car Day" (see pictures and winners) an all British Car Show. Originally, "British Car Day" was held at Allegheny County's Hartwood Acres, but from 1986 we have held it in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Races. Each year in mid July, "British Car Day" and the Vintage Grand Prix Races are held in scenic Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

If all this sounds appealing to you let me invite you to consider a membership in the Western Pennsylvania Triumph Association. Please download our membership application, fill out the blanks and mail it in along with your check. If you are interested in hearing more about our club, or have a comment about our web site, please feel free to email me a note.

Hope to see you soon at a WPTA meeting or event, and thanks for stopping by.
