Which is superior, a Frogeye or a Bugeye? This has long been debated without resolution. Dozens of comments on our Youtube channel claim that one is superior to the other, and that one (or the other) is the most correct and genuine of the breed.
BTW, did you ever notice that all Sprite steering wheels are canted, as though to make more room when you get in or out of the car?
Brits cry “Frogeye!”
Yanks cry “Bugeye!”
Can’t we all just get along? (Times like these, we gotta stick together!).
Frogeyes are home market right hand drive cars, while Bugeyes are left hand drive cars sent to America and other markets.
Before anyone claims superiority, I noticed something this week that is a tangible difference between the two species; Right hand drive cars have a more angled steering wheel than left hand drive cars. I believe this is because of the oil filter assembly, which nearly hits the steering shaft on a RHD car. If the steering wheel was parallel to the dash, the steering column would hit the filter. On a LHD car, there is a little more room because there is little in the way.
Alas, the difference… the steering wheel on a right hand drive car is further angled than on a left hand drive car
Now we all get back to arguing which is a better name for the cars we all love so dearly.
