Spitfire was also a car made by Triumph up until the late 70's Mine was white and I inherited it when my dad traded up to an Alfa Romeo. After a few years the single rear transverse spring would wear out and the rear wheels looked like you had filled your trunk with lead. I took out the spring and had some tension put back in but I had no idea how much was needed so I ended up with the reverse problem and my car looked like a Trabant for a few months. The rear wheels slowly reverted back to what they should have been at which point I sold the car for 9000 Deutschmarks to a gothic kid whose girlfriend thought the car looked cute. I used the proceeds to move to the US and there I bought a ten year old Rabbit for 800 dollars which lasted for seven more years.
