Looks pretty nice! Did it come with the ever popular fire extinguisher option so popular with British cars? They may be quirky but that is part of the fun. :-)

About

I always loved British cars. They have character. Recently, our Porsche club was invited to attend the local British club car show. While there, I realized I needed to get my daughter something British. So I joined the British club that day, and put an ad on their website for a car for my daughter. Well, same day, this Spitfire was posted, so I called and bought it. Went and picked it up, and am currently detailing and restoring. Should have it ready for our Shamrock Chili Feed in January. Does not need much, but want it nice for her. This will be Morgans main car for nice weather and something to get her started going to shows, and maybe even some track driving before long.

Specs

Lets see. Less horsepower than my Harley. 0-60 in like 12 seconds. 1/4 mile. Uh. Lets get my hourglass out.

Just a fun great handling car, but at least for now.......stock.

Factory Options

Options? Oh, map light. I think that was it.

Mods

Oh, for now, none other than emission items are gone. I will probably add a sport exhaust. We will be doing a nice stereo. Eventually wheels and so forth.
