The Loudest Bugeye Sprite in Vintage Racing?
Video from three races of my poor little 1959 Sprite that was wrongfully accused of being "too loud" and cost me a 1st place finish at Blackhawk Farms Raceway with the VSCDA. Take a listen and you be the judge. Warning: I have been told this little 1275cc car is capable of deafening mere mortals!

First video after delivery of my project car (1959 Austin Healey MK1 Sprite). Although it is in worst shape than the seller lead me to believe it should be a fun project. I am going for a "frame-off" restoration.

Austin Healey Frog Eye Sprite
Leonard Lord and Donald Healey were in full swing with the Austin Healey 100 as their premium sports car export, time now to serve the masses. Donald's design brief was to keep costs down, he did by robing the Austin and Morris parts bin. Thankfully he also kept the fun element high, something borne out by an incredible 49,000 units sold in just 3 years of production. We drive Classic Car Club London's superb example and appreciate the simple things in life that make the Frog Eye Sprite a truly memorable experience.

Top Gear - Peugeot 306 3.0 V6 vs. Old Austin-Healey
At this time - We can call this challenge - Old generation vs. New generation car culture. Hammond and May argue about the state of modern-day driving, which sparked a time trial showdown at Prescott Hill Climb Course, pitting a Austin-Healey Sprite representing a mostly middle-aged classic car owners club, versus a modified Peugeot 306 backed by a more youthful group. The Stig takes the two around, with the Sprite, on a serious race-focussed diet, defeating the showy and stereo-laden 306 by one second.
