It has been an awesome year for us.
We have put about 35 Bugeyes into the hands of new owners around the country this year, and we had our biggest year ever. Every category of our business grew in 2020… parts, service, restoration and sales. And we have great new people on staff to help us continue to grow.
I feel quite cautious doing a victory lap, because there are so many people who have had their worst year ever. The desire to have 2020 end as quickly as possible seems unanimous. But I keep coming back to the joy that we brought this year to those 35 new Bugeye owners we served (and the 297 new owners we have served since we opened our doors in 2007!).
Spridget ownership changes your life forever. You can see it on Bud’s face above. And you would see similar happy faces on all the people he passed on the street, and the motorists who drove by (who are often doing double-takes), and the children with noses pressed against the glass, and others hanging out of windows shooting video on their cell phones. And you can see it on Cici’s face in the photo below. She bought her Iris blue Bugeye from us in May of 2015 and has enjoyed it ever since.
There is something very special about these little cars. Bugeyes give people hope that fun and (some degree of) normalcy will be back.
It is an honor to be of service to these wonderful little cars, and to the community of people who love them.
Thank you to all of you who participated in our world this year. Thank you to you loyal readers who look forward our Bugeye Bugle each week. Thank you for sharing these cars with others, so that they too may be enlightened. And a special thank you Bud, for all these great pictures and for playing a lead role in this post!
From all of us at Bugeyeguy, we wish you a healthy and delightful holiday season.
