There hasn’t been a part of the car that I haven’t had in parts, but it has been a tremendous amount of fun.  Cruising down a winding road, clicking the overdrive switch while feeling the breeze has been a great experience.  Being involved with the local club has led to many adventures and great experiences.

Had a 1969 try and spitfire in the 70's. Always missed it so, recently I bought a 1974 Triumph Spitfire. Had a frame off restoration but being a Spitfire always need something fixed, keeps me busy during my retirement. Really enjoy the car.

I was 12 years old when I asked my dad if we could restore a car. He and I had no auto knowledge, tools, or insight into this new world that would eventually dominate our lives. He (for some reason) agreed, and we went and looked at a few cars in the area that were for sale. We both fell in love with a Inca Yellow 1976 Triumph Spitfire. The car was a good candidate for a couple of beginners.

This summer my dad & I bought a used ‘76 Triumph Spitfire 1500. We got this car because we wanted a father-son project. Because of this car, my dad & I have had many fun times: from having to fix gas leaks, install a new muffler to having him teach me to drive stick and getting to spend a lot of time with him.
