Petersen Museum does it again with vintage Triumph Spitfire video

The Petersen Museum may be closed to the public at the moment, but it’s doing its best to keep automotive enthusiasts entertained online.

Put a 12a rotary with its 5 speed in a Spitfire and blew the rear end had to put Datsun 510 diff to handle the power,the car was fast and a lot of fun.

Could almost smell the smells and feel the sun heating up the cockpit! Had a spitfire in 1970 in SoCal. My wife’s daily driver modified suspension. Swing arms arms made the rear pretty twitchy. Added sway bars put a load on the rear end aluminum case. Cracked two of them before switching over to a Mini  Cooper. Fun but an expensive hobby especially if something broke.
