BiTurbo228 - Dr Frankenstein of Spitfires

I feel the same. I will gladly let pretty much any person touch, sit in, or try to drive my car. But the time I found two women I didn’t know sitting in it with a guy taking pictures of them I felt violated. This is the sort of thing that happens when you tell people they can touch other people’s stuff without asking, Read more

Its no longer perfect, no longer a vehicle a in a bubble. Now drive it. Its insured. Its just sheet metal, wire, plastic and rubber. Read more

At this point, most old Miatas are used up half-wrecks and not particularly reliable either. A decent Spitfire has been restored to better than new condition. I don’t tinker with my Spitfire.
