1963 Triumph Spitfire

Gaetan Goulet's 1963 Triumph Spitfire

On our 30th wedding anniversary, I asked my wife, Sylvie, if there was something special she would like. I had previously restored two older vehicles with my two sons as they were growing up.

Sylvie always wanted a convertible so she said, "Let's restore a car together."

I got the opportunity to purchase a work in progress. The Triumph was totally taken apart, so it was like putting together a jigsaw puzzle with many of the pieces missing.

Thanks to Victoria British we were able to restore the car to almost original condition. Note: the interior work using "cheetah" print material to accent the fact that Slyvie has an African Serval cast as a pet.

The car runs great.

Happy wife, happy life.
