A "Special" Delivery

Old commercials selling the British car experience are fun to post and this one is for an early seventies Triumph Spitfire. I'm far from being an expert in the ways of Spitfire, but I think this might be a '74 model in the ad. Spitfire fans, feel free to weigh in here.

This ad attempts to show the Spit's speed and handling characteristics while transporting a very pregnant passenger to a hospital. It is amusing to watch the police "chase" without news helicopters, drawn sidearms or the driver being beaten senseless.

Ah, but no, the couple in the Spitfire is being given a police escort to the "hatching grounds". I suppose it was simpler time, wasn't it?
