I had a 1972 mkiv 1300 Spitfire when I was 18. Those were the days, before car insurance went mental :wink:

I was just talking to a lad in the rugby club who said his dad was doing one of these. This isn't Daves from Houghton is it? He used to have a Morgan and lived in my street when I was a lad if it is.
