A personal blog about an owner’s Triumph.
1974 TR6 Mimosa & Chestnut. Original owner since new in 1974, with a few minor modifications along the way.
Automobile-Catalog is a project with the purpose to gather in one place and publish possibly complete information on specifications, technical data and history of all cars manufactured from 1945. A great majority of data is taken from off-line sources.
The idea was born from automotive enthusiasm, but with very practical dimensions. The project was launched on-line in 2009-2010. Automobile-Catalog is visited by more than half a million users monthly, six million visitors per year – showing that the data presented are needed and appreciated.
There is one special parameter: The answer to the question everyone asks during each discussion about any car – how fast is it? The acceleration, the quarter-mile time, top speed… how to find it out in cases with cars long ago out of production; the cars nobody ever properly tested?
This is a task for Autombile-Catalog’s ProfessCars™ simulation software. The results of calculations in most cases are extremely accurate. The software was tested and calibrated on hundreds of real-life car tests and comparisons.
The project was founded and from the beginning funded only by Pawel Zal, with his private money and time. It took two years of dedicated work done in his spare time, before he felt that the database was good enough to be published in 2009.
