5k: Yellow Jacket: 1979 Triumph Spitfire 12A Rotary Power
If you fancy your afternoon tea with a dollop of wasabi, you might have the right attitude for this next feature. It is a not to uncommon combination of British chassis with Japanese power, but a particularly potent version. Find this 1979 Triumph Spitfire 12A Rotary Power here on eBay currently bidding for $6,199 with a few hours to go.
The recipe of 12A power in a Spitfire is a common enough swap that there is even a catchy name for the combo — the RoSpit! This Spitfire has had its silly bumper fangs removed and it wears 1972 issue chrome bumpers and a bright shade of arrest me yellow.
A peek under the forward hinged bonnet reveals a Mazda 12A rotary engine that has been ported and modified for a claimed 190 horsepower. Expect this thing to be spicy!

I've got an MGB with that same engine. Given the bidding on that, I should really finish re-wiring mine then list it for sale. Fun stuff. youtube.com/watch?v=ghxVFNTGSxY
