6 Things I Learned from a 1976 Spitfire

1. Rain on a canvas top sounds just like rain on a tent.

2. Always bring a towel.

3. You can rebuild the clutch master and slave cylinders on the kitchen table if you get dad’s approval before mom finds out.

4. Fun can be slow. As a matter of fact, fun is better slow.

5. Leave early wherever you’re going. Roadside repairs take time.

6. Driving in the mountains with the top down is the only way to drive in the mountains.
