Take a look at this Triumph Spitfire! She is a Beauty. Everything a British Sports car should be.  This is a solid car that you can get in and drive.  I bought this car from a retired school teacher five  years ago. It was her baby- garage kept- always covered- never saw rain or snow. She no longer had the health to drive the car (Bad knees). Since I have owned it I continued to keep it mechanically up to snuff: And all I can add is that it is fun. fun. fun to drive. With the added feature of an upgraded music system. Pioneer/Jensen. Along with a set of professionally installed speakers. All you'll need is an open road! Beautiful condition for her age with many more wonderful miles of life to come.
