7/29/16 I've got the car in my garage and have tried to resolve the idling (lack of) issue but without success. I've got it up on jack stands now have discovered a leaking rear wheel cylinder. No problem. That I can fix. Leaving to head back home (Delaware) so I'll revisit these issues when I come back in September.

Troubles Begin......

7/23/16 I drove the Spit about 50 miles to a wedding in Petoskey, MI. It now dies whenever I stop at a light or stop sign (won't idle). A little disappointing but I'm sure that, with some help, I'll figure it out.

Picked Up My "New" Spitfire 1500

Posted on: Saturday July 30, 2016

I picked up my Spitfire on Sunday, July 17th. It needs tires and possibly a new convertable top but otherwise looks good. Runs fine although the rear-end sounds a bit loud with the top up. Drove it 150 miles to my cabin in Northern Michigan which will be home for the Spit.
