I am filled with gratitude today.
In 2007, I launched Bugeyeguy.com, fueled by passion for a tiny car that I had owned since 1978. Now, twelve years since the birth of our business, here is a photo of our three excellent technicians simultaneously working on three different Bugeyes in the purpose-built addition to our 1951 Quonset hut. That we even own a Quonset hut full of Bugeye parts and cars is remarkable to me, and that we have a new addition (photographed here) is even more remarkable.
All of this was funded by the more than 260 customers who have purchased Sprites from us over the years, and the many more who have chosen us as their restorer and/or parts supplier. For all of you, I am eternally grateful.
By far the most remarkable aspect of this tribute is that in the moment captured in the photograph above, we have simultaneously put to work three different highly talented individuals at three different work stations on the preparation of three different Bugeye Sprites. Once completed, each one is destined for a different state in the Union, courtesy of our network of enclosed transporters.
We have succeeded in creating a national Sprite service center and demonstrated that there is sufficient demand to keep three mechanics busy full time, and for this, I am forever thankful. There are many British car shops in the world, but I doubt you will find another with 20 Bugeyes under one roof and three technicians working almost exclusively on Bugeye Sprites.
Thank you, dear reader, for your support of our vision, for your support of the entrepreneurial spirit, and for helping us to keep the cars we all love on the road for generations to come.
