“Ruby”
Mostly original, solid Spitfire. I' used to be an air cooled VW guy before children...Kids came along and took all of my money and most of my time...now the kids are grown..or close enough and I was going to get back into my old hobby. I was actually looking for a Karmann Ghia and came across this 77 Spitfire. Something compelled me to drive 3.5 hours to see it and after driving it..I had to have it. I called a nearby U-haul place, rented a trailer one way and brought it home. As luck would have it, I was telling a guy I work with about the car and he actually has one sitting in his moms garage. It belonged to his father who passed away years ago. The floors and rockers are gone but the motor and everything else is all there and in surprisingly good shape. He gave it to me to use as a parts car. It looks like the Spitfire and I were meant to be. If anyone has any thoughts on where I should start first, please let me know. It honestly doesn't seem to have any significant issues requiring immediate attention..or maybe I'm just missing them, so my plan was to begin with easy stuff first like change the fuel filter etc. and move on from there. But again..if there is anything I should look at first, please let me know. Thanks in advance for any advice that may come my way.
