You can meet some of them on the roads, or you can see them at collection car gatherings where they are still as passionate as at the time :

British Spartan Owners at the Motor 100 in Nederland

The agreement was excellent between Spartan Car Compagny, the manufacturer, Spartan Nederland B.V., the Dutch importer, and the English and Dutch Spartan owners clubs.

It was with pleasure that dozens of English owners of Spartan left by convoy on August 5, 1985, for a 15-day trip to Holland.

Alongside their Dutch counterparts, they participated in the Motor 100 rally.

Nowadays, the Spartans still in circulation are often warm in their owners' garage, waiting for a Sunday walk, an outing from the Club, a gathering or a road trip.
