She was a Bug Eye Sprite; the icing on the cake was she was driven by an equally lovely young lady. After the formal introduction to the young lady I was introduced to the Bug Eye. The car had a mild cam with Webber carburetors, tuned headers and exhaust, oversized Pirellis on wire wheels. I never forgot my first introduction to British Sports Cars and to this day the Love continues.
I have owned a Spitfire which I drove for several years when I lived in Spain and shipped her home to be driven for several more glorious years. And today I am the proud original owner of a TR6.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoy the thrill of the drive and the music of exhaust notes on our road trips with the Gold Coast British Sports Car Club.

However, about six years ago, he and his son began restoration of a Red TR6. When completed, that car was a winner! Jim was also the proud grandfather of two granddaughters 4 year-old Jacey and 8 year-old Morgan.
In fact, Morgan is also fond of British cars and enjoys going to car shows with her Dad Jay.

There, they received an educational tour of the site by Executive Director of the mansion, JoEllen Phillips. Phillips spoke of the rich history of the mansion and how its founder Glenn Curtiss — aviation pioneer, land developer and all-around innovator — was an unsung hero.
It was obvious that the group was intrigued by all of the stories of that Phillips was telling about the past. Many of them posed questions that she was able to answer swiftly and energetically.
