All done. Insofar as a special is ever really done. On the road.

Distinctive appearance.
Isn't it good to see a car that's actually done, rather than an abandoned 'project'.

"Distinctive appearance". Not to my tastes but would likely be a spirited ride. Here's a GT6 where the builder was able to fit a Buick 215 under the stock hood.

I'd like to say that is a most interesting Spitfire .A really original way of dealing with the space problem. Kudos to the builder Tim
