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!

We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one! The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car that was announced to the press in Monte Carlo by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) on 20 May 1958, just before that year's Monaco Grand Prix. It was intended to be a low-cost model that "a chap could keep in his bike shed", yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, which received a royalty payment from the manufacturers BMC. It first went on sale at a price of £669, using a mildly tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine and as many other components from existing cars as possible to keep costs down. The Sprite was made at the MG sports car factory at Abingdon and it was inevitable that the success of the design would spawn an MG version known as the Midget, reviving a popular pre-war model name. Enthusiasts often now refer to Sprites and MG Midgets collectively as "Spridgets
