Our first ever Spitfire parked in the doorway of our first unit in Nuneaton in the mid 1980's. Bought from my mates brother as a resto project it's only saving grace was it came fitted with a new Stanpart bonnet. We spent far too much money and time making a really nice job of this when Spitfire values were at their lowest. This is probably the time I first met John Kipping and started filling his pockets with cash! The intention had been to keep this one, but a fleet culling saw this go locally for a song, I can't for the life of me remember exactly when, still about?
