One of the standard modern-day motoring clichés is the desire for a modern-day Sprite – a synonym for an open-topped two-seater that’s cheap to buy and run. When Austin-Healey launched its ‘Frogeye’ Sprite in May 1958 it cost £679, or not much more than a four-door Morris Minor; this really was fun motoring on the cheap.

The Bugeye Vintage Racer is in the body shop. It is one of those "do it between the others who are on a tighter schedule" jobs so it will be there a while. I get a weekly update. Sometimes it is good news sometimes bad. In all the effort is holding to cost and on schedule. My problem is staying focused.

After getting serious about the restoration effort of the Bugeye Vintage Racer I am truly impressed with the progress. It is now at the point where all of the mechanical parts have been removed and neatly stored. Every suspension bolt and associated hardware have been removed, cleaned and put back on the chassis roller. It is now time for the dreaded “B” word. It is time to start working on the BODY.

We were struck with some spring weather and I was able to get in some shop time. Shop time always takes precedence. However, one evening I dug into my automotive library and found a program from the 1966 Road America June Sprints.

A real Bugeye racecar was now sitting in my shop. Let me start by putting something in perspective. It took me about 9 months to get serious about starting the rebuilding. I had no problems with dismantling.
