Own a vintage British roadster? Not going anywhere for a while? Hungry? Why wait?

    He's just showing the curious passers-by the sweet dual Weber setup that he installed in place of the old SU. She seems less than thrilled that he would rather talk cars with his buddies than go to the matinee of Hope Floats*.
    Been there.
    *Notice to hoons: Hope Floats is not a movie about the Amphicar. Don't be fooled.

      If it was about the Amphicar, it would have been called Hope Rusts and Slowly Sinks

      Given the era, he's probably trying to avoid the next showing of Love Story

    British Leyland and Lucas Electrics were an early contribution to the Green movement – how can you spew carbon when you're not driving?

    I'd say, looking at that image, British guys in the '60s had their priorities dead wrong.

    HA! Been there myself, with more than a few girlfriends and 2 wives, not the British cars though. It’s rare to find a “car girl” so there have been those rare times when I’d meet another “motorheard/gearhead/etc. and my day would stall until I “came to” (or the other guys wife/G-F “reminded” him)and realized that I did in fact, have an attractive female waiting most patiently for me. I always make it up to ’em though.

    And say what you want, even knowing what I know about the Spitfire, it's still a very wantable car.
