    Hi, New Member from Maryland

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. But since I'm posting here, you probably guessed that.

    I drive a 1976 Triumph Spitfire 1500 that I bought as a parts car in 1985. It was so much more solid than my original Spitfire that it became my daily driver. Now it has over 190,000 miles on it. All with the original engine.

    I'm a member of the DC-centered Capital Triumph Register.

    As a side note, I recently posted a calendar listing for our club's Britain on the Green show to be held on April 25 in Alexandria, VA. Unfortunately, I garbled the web site for the club and the event. The correct site is:

    www.capitaltriumphregister.com

    Welcome Art;

    This is the corner of mayhem and mishap.
    On the other hand, there is no better site on the "Net.
    Slip over to the Triumph forum and greet the folks.
    P.S. Pictures will make you friends for life.
    ENJOY

    Hi Art, and welcome to the Forum from another Marylander!

    Dr Entropy, DC = District of Columbia. It's sort of a non-state sandwiched in between the commonwealth of Virginia and the state of Maryland.

    Hey Bryan, I'm retired USAF also.
