Bought by my father many years ago, but during restoration he lost interest and I got the car back on the road in 2001 when I was 19. Since then the car has been my daily driver whilst at home from uni, racking up 13,000 miles in three years of summer use.
Have now graduated from uni and have a company car, so Spitfire is now a little more pampered but much played with! Am currently spending lots of money on the car bringing it up to scratch. Recent projects include Koni’s all round, 330lb springs on the front, new leaf spring, CatII immobilisor, Electric fan, full width radiator, MKIII profile cam, 1.5″ SU carbs, Aldon electronic ignition, oil cooler, overdrive gearbox etc etc.
Car is also featured in Triumph World’s ‘Running Reports’ section, and I will be entering in Club Triumph’s 10CR for 2005, a 2000 mile dash across eurpoe.
