David Ortiz did not buy a Bugeye today. Nor is there fall training camp at bugeyeguy.com. That is, however, his roughly $450k Rolls Royce Phantom in front of the Bugeyeguy world series headquarters on the very day that the Red Sox would go on to win the 2013 world series with “Señor Octubre” as series MVP.
We use high-end enclosed carriers to move our cars, and it turns out that Big Papi’s ride was also heading to Florida this week on the very same truck that our light blue Bugeye Duffey would ride to Miami (enroute to that Bugeye’s eventual destination in Brazil!) The big Rolls had to be unloaded so our Bugeye could get on board.
Fans throughout our complex poured into the parking lot for a photo of this car. Our stature soared over the fence. That’s our UPS guy “Red” (who brings us most of our Bugeye parts) and a few other neighbors gathering in awe. If you can’t meet the man, his car is the next best thing.
Check out the front office of the Rolls and the Bugeye, and tell me if maybe 6’4″ Ortiz wouldn’t be more comfortable at the wheel of a Bugeye… nah, probably should stick with his Rolls, better for his batting average.
Last week, Clay Buchholz’s Audi R8 and Porsche Cayenne joined Bugeye Iris (enroute to Palm Desert, CA) on another truck heading West. I understand Clay’s cars were bound for Phoenix. That’s Clay’s Audi on top, with little Iris underneath, in the bottom photo.
Maybe a little Bugeye is a good luck rabbit’s foot for a fast Audi or a big Rolls. Perhaps the Bugeye Sprite should win series MVBS.
