This is Rod Buller, who purchased his first blue 948 bugeye from us a few years ago (Bluebird 1, background above, which now lives with a new owner in Texas). He was 86 at the time, and the oldest active Bugeye driver we had ever met. I was delighted when he called me a year or so later to purchase his second bugeye, formerly known as Priscilla (now Bluebird 2, foreground above), a modified stunner, with more power, better brakes and a five speed transmission. Here he is at left this this week with Bluebird 2 (with its new racing stripe).
Rod is now 88 and approaching his 89th birthday this March. I recall a Dannon Yogurt commercial years back with multiple centenarians touting the health benefits of yogurt, but I have a feeling Rod has found another route to a long and healthy life. Thank you, Rod, for showcasing the Bugeye fountain of youth. Keep on motoring good sir, we are all inspired by the many Bugeye miles you continue to put under your belt!
