I have an MGB built in '96 but registered as a '67. 215 CI/3.5 Liters. Can I play? If not, I have a stock '73 MGB. Fellow Brit car masochist?

Spitfire

I have loved that car (Spitfire) since I was a kid. Classic.

I had a red 1974. Fun car but a little small for me. I'm 6'3 and my friend is the same size. We looked like a couple of gorillas when we drove around together.

I’ve always thought the Spitfire was very pretty. I had a 68 MGB that I loved.
Do you have a can of Lucas replacement wire smoke?

I bought mine new in 1967 when I got out of the service. I saw a restored one awhile back but I donít think I could get in our out if I had to.

I've had a number of Brit cars, MG, AH, Morris, Hillman Husky..... My dad had a MGTD I learned to drive on.

Never had a Triumph Spitfire, so when I saw this I had to have it. It's fairly well sorted. Another summer toy.

I have an old Triumph, 1954 TR-2, SN TS396 L1, that I bought in college in '62 in Seattle. I raced it for the last 2 years of my totally- broke collegiate life and I'm on my third restoration now so my son can inherit it in the not too distant future. This time I,m replacing ALL the wiring. Ben

Lucas did not invent darkness but he DID perfect it.

I like the spitfire but would love to have a TR6. I remember in the early 70's an add that had a spitfire (car) parked next to a real spitfire (fighter), awesome.
