    Back off to Wales on Wednesday to pick her up. For some reason I'm calling her Sally in my head. :crazy:

    Ohhhh, look at that. :thumbup: Great looking car.

    And all I can think is that it wants to be photographed on Time Zero, and manipulated. :blushing: It's perfect!

    Congrats!

    Well, only one of us has that stuff. So you'd have to come over here and take some pictures. :mrgreen:

    Triumph Herlad 13/60 Convertible.
    It was something like this or a boring Clio/Fiesta/Corsa. It'll cost more in fuel, but there is no depreciation (it'll be worth more than it was bought for with just a slight clean-up), no tax to pay and the insurance is less that £200 (fully comp.).
    It was reg'd in '68. So the car is 38 years old. :mrgreen:

    It shares lots of parts with the Spit. I plan on fitting overdrive and when I do I'll buy a Spit box with it already on there. It bolts straight on and just needs a shorter prop shaft (the Vitesse one fits) and wiring up.

    Gonna fit an alternator as well. It has a dymo and that won't provide enough charge for when I fit new lights (the originals are ****e) and fog lamps.





    Forgot to add.
