I was talking to a client today about adding a luggage rack to a Bugeye for carrying more cargo. While this is an option that is available, I want to remind everyone of just how much cargo space a Bugeye provides without adding anything additional to the rear deck. With the seat bottom removed on the passenger side, you can carry a ton of gear in a Bugeye or Spridget. I’ll routinely remove the passenger seat bottom and leave it at home; this allows me to use my Bugeye far more frequently without having to break out a larger car. More Bugeye fun is facilitated when you can utilize the car for hauling cargo on various errands!
Of course, a luggage rack is a wonderful addition if you wish to haul a golf bag, or a folding bike, or even a wicker picnic basket; however, not everybody wants to drill holes in the back deck of their car. We do sell luggage racks; you can find them in our catalog here. But never underestimate what can be carried inside a Bugeye fuselage.
Below is the very first YouTube video I ever made (with Gumby, before restoration), uploaded before the invention of the iPhone! But while all the video technology has changed, the fact still remains the Bugeye is more versatile than people would think!
