SHINY VINTAGE

By hobbo
A different sounding engine note always attracts my camera….I want wrong to shoot this very shiny old Triumph.

The driver/owner spotted me as he had an unexpected wait in traffic caused by the approach of a siren-sounding emergency vehicle.

Always wanted a Triumph Spitfire when I was 17 and first driving

Didn't get one though!

Lovely nostalgic shot Hobbo

Like Colin I've always likes the Spitfire (esp V6 GT variant) although I ended up with a Lotus Excel.
A friend did have one, given their ability to rust I'm surprised you've got this shot.
A nice shot of a lovely car.

My first car was the Triumph GT6…like the Spitfire but with a 2 litre straight 6 engine and a hard top. It went like a go-cart! Beautiful engine note from outside the car, but on the inside all you could hear was the whining of the gearbox which sounded like an old bus 😂🤣
