I am a car enthusiast first and foremost. I spend all summer going to every car show I can find. My first love is Mopar muscle cars. I love speed and have an extremely fast 1973 Dodge Dart Sport. I run it in the streets and on the track. I own a 1983 Dodge Ramcharger that I am building a 440 for and plan on making a fast truck. Still, I have always liked LBC. They have a look I have always liked, and I am drawn to them again and again. I owned a 1973 Triumph Spitfire that I rebuilt from a virtual barn find. I was 3/4 through when my mother died and I lost interest in it, and many other things. I sold it and went back to Mopar muscle. Now I have the opportunity to get hold of an MG and I think the LBC bug has bitten me again. Though I keep thinking of the 300hp 318 motor and matching transmission I have in the garage and wonder how I can squeeze that into a Midget .....

Minnesota Triumph Sports Car Club

Posted on: Thursday May 20, 2010

I have always wanted to go to a Minnesota Triumph Sports Car Club meeting, but it meets at Fort Snelling's Officer's Club, and when I was unemployed last summer I couldn't afford the drive. Now I work five miles away and decided to go. They meet the second Thursday of the month. The meeting itself was boring, conducted as it was by classic rules, but I met some interesting people. It seems that almost everyone who drives a Spitfire is an insanely tall or large person. I thought I was big at 6'2"...

Dammit!

I installed the clutch master and bracket onto the car. I was going to install the brake master, but I never tried test fitting it before I rebuilt it, and guess what? It is the wrong master. I bought it last summer from an out of state junkyard. I can't quite get it to fit and line up the bracket's mounting holes, and even if I did, the brake line in the rear would never attach. I guess I am better off buying a new one anyway. They aren't that expensive, and then I can be sure it will fit. Time...

We Can Rebuild It...

I brought the brake and clutch masters into work at the transmission shop I work at. I disassembled the clutch master and it had dried up crap and corrosion but was not too bad. The brake master was full of very rusty fluid. I put all the pieces in the heated parts washer and cleaned them all up. Today I worked at Vrooom and after work I used the wire wheel to clean the external surfaces and they came so clean I changed my mind and did not paint them black. I polished all the internal plungers a...

Back At It

Posted on: Thursday May 6, 2010

Well, it has been a long time and many things have happened. I haven't touched my Spitfire since late October when Mom died. Dad has been in and out of the hospital and I spent most of the time living with him and taking care of him. I finally came back home and found a job and am working full time and more. Six days a week at two jobs. I really need the money. I had a new fuel pump, which I hoped would cure my running problems. The car would start and run, but had a hard time staying runnin...
