Triumph Spitfire in the Wild

09-1101 029

No, I’m not turning this into a car blog, honest.  But can you blame if I spotted some interesting cars during my recent time in New Hampshire? 

No.  Of course you can’t.

Anyway, this specimen I spotted it on the way to lunch one day.  It is, if my eyes do not deceive me, a Triumph Spitfire.  You don’t see too many of these on the road these days; the last one rolled off the assembly line in 1980, making this piece of rolling automotive history close to thirty at minimum.  (The chrome bumper might suggest the car was older still—no later than a ‘78—but of course, there’s no way to know if it’s the original bumper.)
