This page is about my 1978 Triumph Spitfire - stories, advice and other stuff. It is dedicated to the memory of my father who introduced me to Spitfires and now can enjoy rustless English steel, reliable Lucas electrics and a top that is perpetually down. (since it wouldn't be heaven without Spitfires). Thanks, Dad...

Since I have but infrequent acess to a scanner or a digital camera, there will be few pictures on this site. Instead, a thousand words...

I hope to continue to expand and update this site. Check back often...
