Spitfire MK1 East Dorset

Recommended Posts

Afternoon all.

I'm the new and extremely proud owner of HPF 107C. Dubbed "Audrey" by the household, she's my first classic and a testament to the prior owners' diligence and ability. I hope to do right by them, and will doubtless be leaning on a lot of you for knowledge and assistance.

...today is the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Spitfire at the London Motor Show.

Blimey. That was a hell of a year for little british sports cars then. The Spitfire, the first Cooper "S", the Lotus Elan, Jensen C-V8, the mighty DB4 vantage (with the facelift that Cubby Broccoli would make famous world over) and (ahem) the MGB.

Lots of faces, but if there was a tail I had to tuck into the garage each night, it'd be the Spitfire MK1 every day.

Oh Mon Joo that's beautiful! Lovely colour and looking very very original.

Thanks. She is an absolute stunner. Every time I open up the garage I find myself just stopped and staring at her. As I learn more about her, I realise just how close to original she is. Will get some more photos when the sun comes back.

Welcome aboard! Love the colour. PF was a Guildford registration so it started life not too far from where you are now. 

Thanks. Good to be here. BRM Green, which is going to be a pain to fix for the inevitable stone chips but oh so pretty. Nice to think after being around the country with her prior owners she’s coming home.

Thanks @Stratton Jimmer. I'm definitely looking forward to learning all about these beautiful cars.

Make my day / month / year and get a photo with Corfe Castle in the background.

That's a worthy ambition. I may see if I can convince my other half to ride out with me and take some snaps.
