New Member with Vitesse Mk1 in Suffolk

Recommended Posts

HI, technically I am not new as I joined a couple of years ago. I have asked lots of questions and received lots of advice from others. I thought it was about time to introduce myself. I live in Sudbury, Suffolk. This is my second Vitesse, I had a 1600 before this Mk1 and a Herald 12/50 before that. I have had my Vitesse since June last year, I have made some minor improvements and alterations and it has recently been MOT'd. IT is great to drive.

That a great looking Vitesse Bob.. i love the colour scheme. 

TSSC club meeting at the Sorrel Horse, Barham, Old Norwich road near Ipswich, IP6 0PG tonight.  The weather forecast says it should brighten up to be a nice evening.  Be good to see you all there.

The colour of my car is cactus green. It was originally blue but was changed sometime ago and there is no sign of blue anywhere.

I believe the cactus green was a triumph colour but I guess it is not too common. I love it and it certainly draws lots of comments.

Nice but thats much too green to be Cactus  it was the brochure launch colour on the front page 

as cactus and black , ( 15/11)  i new of only one other than mine  we had a pair at duxford one year

its green but its far too green to be Triumph Cactus  which is quite pale

may be a paint factors idea of some other  Cactus  .. Not Triumphs

I was told by the seller it was cactus green. Never having seen a cactus green before I knew no different.

I have just found a touch up pot that came with the car. It is from a company called Master Chroma and is code  CG6390 Green.
