1963 Triumph SpitfireReview
Amazing Design, Easy To Work On, Quite A Head Turner — Never built as a performance car, accept that and enjoy the ride. The car is a small, lightweight vehicle that gets amazing MPG. It has the looks that most 2 seat convertibles are based off. The interior is sparse and is lacking for a long drive.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Rare and FUN to drive
Cons: Lack of top end and braking
