1250 Miles in a Bugeye Sprite, and counting!

These intrepid travelers flew-in from Austin, Texas last weekend and took off in their new Bugeye “Molly” last week. 1250 miles later, they are still on a very interesting geography experiment. I thought they were headed back to Austin but their first stop was due North of our shop in Burlington, VT. This is a good sign. It must mean that Molly is a lot of fun to drive.

Bugeye “electronic key” shirts… car only runs when matching t-shirts are worn.

Amanda and Vic are on one most excellent road trip. And they are collecting pictures of good food and roadside monuments to prove it. For us, it’s a great reliability test, and the further they go, the more we learn about how to build the most drivable British car.

Just add hats and cowboy boots.

Our goal has always been to produce great cars our clients can really use. It’s easy to fall in love with an Internet bride while surfing, but will that classic car make it around the block when it arrives?

And you thought Mercedes Gullwing luggage was special.

We are in the details business, and our goal is for you to get into one of our cars and drive it 1250 miles (and hopefully a whole lot more!) without issue. Customers like Amanda and Vic give us a chance to see how well we are doing.

Breakfast in Burlington… while drivers gorge, Molly gathers over-the-counter drugs across the street for what lies ahead.

After a nice breakfast in Burlington, Molly boarded the ferry to Plattsburgh, NY, and our crew headed to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater out in Western Pennsylvania (Southeast of Pittsburgh.

Across Lake Champlain, to Plattsburgh, NY.
The timeless design world tour

And then back to Gettysburgh. Next stop, Key West! If they keep going, they will eventually run into Texas… (it’s the big one down there somewhere).

Gettysburg. Changing times, changing automotive priorities.

The car is performing wonderfully. She has consumed one quart of oil, which is probably about right for a middle-aged 948 engine. And no issues other than some lighting challenges after an afternoon in the rain. Those cute little British wiring bullets are not as water tight as one might like. And Molly has an older wiring harness, the changing of which was not part of the scope of our preparations. Here’s to drier weather as they head South!

Here’s an excerpt from Amanda’s notebook:

Observations after our first day in Mollie… Driving is far more elemental. More like a motorcycle than a modern car. You are connected to everything around you, nothing filters you from the road and the world around you. Smells, sights, sounds, wind, bugs. It is truly a tiny car, parking is a breeze, but she can hide behind a subcompact. You can’t be in a hurry, you will be stopped constantly by people that want to talk about the car. There seems to be a wave unique to old British car drivers, we seem to now be in the club. There is a surprising amount of leg room, but don’t let you cell phone slide under the seat!  Major rescue operation to get it out lol. I now understand why women used to wear hair scarves!  Sunscreen is a must!

Thank you for sharing your adventure with us Amanda, Vic and Molly! We’ll have another update next week!
