It's an old Spitfire, so naturally there are things that are wrong with it. There are still intermittent running problems that occur, but the rebuild of the Stromberg CD150 carburetor and the entire ignition system has gone a long way towards making the vehicle much more reliable. I trust it to get me to work a few days a week, but wouldn't want to drive it more than 50 miles from my house.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
