Ducky and the Larricks have arrived home in Mt Vernon, Washington after their cross country Bugeye tour. This is a great testimonial of what is possible for the original Bugeye engine, and also a great testimonial for our team.
Everyone here leveraged every ounce of experience with the more than 300 Spridgets that have come through our doors, and applied that expertise to the build to make sure maximum reliability for the Larricks would be the result.
The only failure on the entire journey was the turn signal flasher unit. (These fail all the time). So we are ecstatic!
4001 miles in a 948-powered Bugeye Sprite feels like a world record, especially since so many people upgrade to the stronger and more powerful 1275 engine. Congratulations TJ and Karen on your awesome adventure!
And to everyone else… get out and drive your old cars!
Thank you to Karen for these awesome photos of their cross country trip with Ducky!
