This is David from Michigan, and he is very happy.
This is his first test drive in “Mellow,” his new Bugeye Sprite. We sold it to him and then upgraded it to his specifications. When he flew-in from Michigan this week to take it for a drive, I watched him beam from my passenger seat perch and thus I was prompted to take the photo below.
Dave’s a former 356 owner, and in the video below, he makes a good point about how those Porsches (and many other collectibles) have become too expensive to enjoy.
As with most of our cars, there was a build out process… a few cracked rubber trim gaskets changed, a front sway bar added, upgraded wheel bearings, upgraded fuel pump, new three point retractable seat belts and lots more. The end result is a fully-sorted car, ready to be used and enjoyed.
Our goal is to make the most drivable and user-friendly British sportscar, and when we see unbridled joy in the faces of our customers (as we did with David), we know we are fulfilling our mission.
Thank you David, and many thanks to the 242 other people who have taken one of our vehicles home (and we have another great yellow Bugeye in stock, in case you are thinking you might want to dive-in).
