The Image at left is from Road & Track’s April, 1984 “Rod and Truck” spoof. They were lampooning their own posters you might remember regularly advertised in the magazine in the early 80s. “Le Dilettante” features a then yellow Bugeye once owned by magazine road test editor Kim Reynolds, who generously provided these reproductions so I could share them here. That yellow car is AN5L 8620, later restored and painted Speedwell blue, the very same “RT” Bugeye we have for sale in our current inventory.
Below you can see the original page that was being spoofed in the annual April Fools R&T, an edition I looked forward to reading every year! Beneath that, you see the original spoof poster advertisement in its entirety.
