I was introduced to British cars from my dad who from the time I was little had a Triumph TR4. He was forced to put it into storage for many years. When he finally got it back on the road it was in very rough shape. Few years after that he found a cheap Spitfire which I bought and restored.Read More

Except for its first couple of years, the car has been somewhere in the family. Like many classics, it spent part of its life garaged in non-working condition. In 2005, my wife's uncle obtained the car from his brother-in-law in Washington State (where it rode out the Mount St. Helens eruption in 1980), transported the car to Missouri and proceeded to get it back in working condition.Read More

I was introduced to Triumph cars through a friend’s Spitfire when I was in High School in Hartford, Connecticut. I never got to drive it, but I did go to the beach in it several times.
