Austin Healey "Bugeye" Sprite - Inexpensive and Fun British Roadster

Austin Healey Sprite "Bugeye" from Smiling Wombat 

"When I grow up I want to be a Ferrari," said the little Bugeye.

The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1961. The car was affectionately known as the "Bugeye" in the United States.  Thanks to the grinning grille and those bulging headlamps, the car was dubbed the “Bugeye” Sprite, or “Frogeye” in the U.K. The Sprite quickly gained popularity thanks to its affordability and fun driving experience. Today, the Bugeye Sprite is a collector's item and is highly sought after by enthusiasts.  The Bugeye is a driver-focused, undiluted roadster with classic British charm,
It had a top speed of 82.9 mph and could accelerate from 0–60 mph in 20.5 seconds—fuel consumption of 36 miles per gallon.  Horsepower was 43 with a 948cc 4-cylinder engine.
Many owners still use their Austin Healey Sprites in competition today, Sixty years after its introduction.
