I didn't add a Spit to my entry. It is hard not to, who wouldn't want to fly one?
However, owning and operating one?
I have a friend, who shall remain nameless, who is a very good aerobatic pilot, he had a go in a two-seater Spit. He said it was a disappointing experience because the plane was operated so far within its limits that, once you got over the ambiance, it was like flying a fairly dull tourer.
It would be great to fly a Spit and wring it out a bit, but you wouldn't would you? It would be doing a disservice to the history and value of the plane.
If I had 5 million, I would definitely have a go in someone else's Spitfire, but I'd probably spend my money on something else...
In my case, building a Carbon-Fibre Cap 232
