We’ll soon tire of these wordplays on "Tornado" and "Typhoon." In the meantime, we are happy to announce that our Typhoon is safely at our home base in Florida. We have cleaned it up, looked it over, done some photography and inventoried everything that came with the project and formed some first impressions.

First, this is one clever car. It is seemingly well constructed, making a lot out of very rudimentary components. It is also quite roomy and larger than we thought. We originally thought it was the size of a Triumph Spitfire. Not so. It is well over 13 feet long, dwarfing the MGB parked next to it in our barn.

Our model is called the “occasional four,” and supposedly had a back seat. While perhaps not that big, there will be no problem fitting taller drivers in this car and there will be still lots of space for luggage—if not passengers—behind the front seats.
