This is Linda, our 347th Bugeye, sold to Doug in Indiana. Doug wanted all the best drivability upgrades, and so we have begun a set of upgrades in earnest. I thought you might like to see the work in progress, this is somewhat typical for us as we upgrade to disk brakes, and a new exhaust header. The car will enjoy several dozen upgrades before she departs! Thank you Doug for the opportunity!
I’m pretty busy driving Bugeyes most days, but I am lucky to have my own really nice BJ8 too. That’s my 1964 phase one I’m leaning on, Grady’s new 67 BJ8 behind me, and John’s 1966 Bj8 behind that. I was particularly excited to see three Healey Blue examples in one place! (Not something you see everyday!)
These are cars here for mechanical sorting. (Mine is already sorted). Send us yours and we will make it a delight to drive. We speak big Healey too!
Now sold by the owner.
This 1971 Mini Cooper roadster conversion needs a new home. If you are looking for a project, here’s an inexpensive Mini to enjoy. There is an engine and transmission installed and you should presume that everything will need restoration. The car has been sitting for a number of years. It did run and drive in this configuration but has been sitting a long time and will need to be completely gone through.[Read more…] about The skinny on the Mini
The Mystic Aquarium here in Connecticut recently rescued 5 Beluga whales that were in distress at a aquatic Canadian equivalent of a puppy mill, and this operation required military transport plans and a lot of big tanks to pull off. The project cost a boatload of money but the whales are now safe and smiling in Mystic.
Next week, we have a nice benefit evening planned and we are auctioning off our Subaru powered Speedster and if it meets reserve a nice donation will go to the aquarium. Come support the effort, and bit on line if you like, the links for the auction are below!
Come meet the whales and bid on the naming rights at the event next week, you’re invited! Click here to see the invite!
Check out Azul’s photo album here, this is the car in the auction!

This is Gary H’s Bugeye in it’s driveway in Australia! Gary was “moved” to send us this picture of his car and the pile that it left behind in his garage after he read our recent post about frame weep holes. (click here if you missed that post)
“Hi David, just a quick email to thank you for alerting me about the chassis holes. Have owned this car since 1972 and rebuilt repaired maintained all these years but didn’t know about the holes which were covered by previous owner in bitumen paint. Can see by the photo the amount of crap I got out once I opened the holes up. Thanks Mate !!! “
Thanks Gary! We wish you many more rust free miles in that great Frogeye!”
