Another British flag paint job owned by Mike Bristow
"My daughter asked if she could use my 1977 Triumph Spitfire in her 1998 Napa (CA) High School homecoming parade. She and a few classmates painted the car in an Austin Powers theme. I kept the car in this livery for about the next two years. It invariably got positive reaction from elementary age kids "Cool Car" they would shout. Above that age bracket the call was usually "Austin Powers sucks". The paint job became a problem when I was pulled over by the Napa Police Dept. for a minor traffic violation. The officer remarked 'I wouldn't have noticed you if it wasn't for that paint job'. That was the end of the Union Jack. I resprayed the car Tahiti blue the next week."

Dan and Chris Porter were inspired by issue #14's cover of Spitfire & GT6 magazine adding a British flag to their bonnet. "It gets lots of attention at car shows! And I have a small model of the Spitfire (visible in the lower left-hand side of the photo) with a Union Jack under its bonnet too!"
