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.

Part 8 - Custom Front Suspension - 1969 Austin Healey Sprite EV Conversion
Tube shocks and new upper A-arm should give me more stability and flexibility. Plus, $18 tube shocks are a lot better than replacing $150 lever shocks. Visit http://evsprite.com for full project details. It's good to be back in action after a long hiatus. Special thanks to brother Brian for helping jumpstart the project again.





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!
