Lifelong Oregon resident '81 Triumph Spitfire 1500
I've a soft spot for all things weird and Malaise Era and underappreciated. So naturally I had to get shots of this 1979-81 (confirmed '81 according to the shop foreman) USDM Triumph Spitfire 1500, wearing its factory Michelotti/Leyland hardtop, original license plates, and original dealer plate frame.
The Maple Brown paint is very malaise era, but very cool too, even in its chalky current condition. Years ago I photographed this, but the photos are long gone, and it's nice catching up with it even after sitting outside in Oregon four season weather since the tail end of the Obama years. But it is obviously being revived & obviously loved, given the time & money spent at The Sports Car Shop in downtown Eugene before landing at this muffler shop.
