Readers' Photos # 4: Triumph Spitfire

Thanks to Tasmanian architect Mark Drury, FSB, for the photos of this Western Australian registered Triumph Spitfire, photographed in Bathurst Street, Hobart, one summer's evening.

It's a later version - a Mk IV - taking some styling cues from the Michelotti designed Stag, which is especially evident in profile and around the car's rear.

UMPH has information from a credible source that the owner drove it to Tasmania a couple of years ago from Perth, Western Australia, a trip of just over 4,000 kilometres that included crossing the Nullabor Desert and spanned four Australian states.
