I'm Stacy and have just picked up my 1980 Spit 1500. As you can guess I'm not originally from Holland and as I bought my car in 1999 just 6 weeks before unexpectedly moving here from the UK the steering wheel is not where you would expect to find it 🙂
The car has just had a body off restoration, with a new engine, gearbox and many many other parks, but due to my dad getting ill and passing away (the car was supposed to be his last project) has taken a long time to get back on the road, and is not really complete yet. Getting it home to the garage today was a completely bitter sweet moment for me.
There are still cooling, gauge, and brake niggles to sort before I am comfortable taking her on a ride out with other Spitfires but hope to get there at some point this year! After that the interior needs a spruce up - but that can wait for 12 months 🙂
Oh, and sorry for the English - I can read Ducth, just not sure that you could understand my rather poor Dutch grammar so was lazy...
Groetjes, and hope to meet some of your over the course of the year,
