Triumph Spitfire - my son "driving"

Probably my favorite picture of all time. My son (roughly one and half at the time I think) pretending to driving my old Triumph Spitfire. Great car with great memories. I used to take him for rides all over the place in it - bulky child seat and all. A gust of wind came up just at the right moment to give the impression of speed. Sadly I sold the car but never should have - still my favorite to this day.

    Great photo. How old is your son now? Is the Spitfire still around?

    Thanks - my son is now six but the Spitfire was sold a couple years back.

    My son is six also, my daughter is two, and I still have my Spitfire! :-) I've had it since 1981. I have a few photos of them in my other Spitfire. I'll have to put them on my site.
