We’ve sent quite a few Bugeyes as gifts to unsuspecting recipients. Here’s a video that captures unsuspecting Char as she sees her new Bugeye for the first time. “Phoenix” was purchased as her surprise birthday present. We shipped the car to Colorado, which is where you can now watch the gift-giving moment.
According to her boyfriend, Char was in shock, and it took a few hours for her to realize that this Bugeye was actually hers. A few days later, off they went to the annual National Austin Healey Conclave, which happened to be just 3 miles from their home this year in Colorado. Springs!
It’s great to see a Bugeye bring new interest into the British car community!
