Bugeye people

You never know where our cars will show up… here’s Dave P and his daughter-in-law Marenda in “Red,” (our 222 sold) at the Tennessee Soybean Festival parade in Martin, TN. this September. I am honored one of our beans was present! Could be the first time a Bugeye ever appeared in a Soybean festival. Looks like fun!

1952 MGTD, great car at a great price!

This is a wonderful car available now for just $17,495. This is a below market price. Check it out! We are selling it for our friend Scott, who bought the car from us and has sold his house and needs the space. The car is in Rhode Island. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to have a whole lot of British car fun, check out this timeless classic and call!





I’ve owned this car several times. Scott has had it for the past 5 years and drove it very little (has has about 12 other classics).

The car was fully restored with a custom engine turned dashboard that looks stunning. New tonneau, great radial tires, and just a blast to drive. Not a rickety-bias-ply ride, but instead a real sportscar that rides on smooth radials. Great handling, great ride and great fun! Super clean-especially in the engine bay. Also has a spin on oil filter conversion to simplify service.

The car shines nicely and looks stunning. There is no rust and there are no dings. The engine runs great and was completely rebuilt less than five thousand miles ago. Call with questions or for more information.

This is a vintage roadster that is tons of fun, with a whole lot of style and grace for not a lot of money.

Drive-by video below! (note: some microphone distortion due to low-tech old camera, but engine sounds great!)

Bugeye Sprite bounce test

This one fails.

Lever shocks have to work properly on Spridgets or they drive like crap. In fact, I would bet that anyone who says they were terrified while driving a Bugeye at speed was driving a car with blown front shocks.

It’s pretty easy to tell if the shocks are gone, you can see in the video below why this car needed new shocks immediately. A car with good front shocks will bounce once and stop, with well-damped motion.

We sell two types of shocks in our catalog. To view our standard front shocks, click here. For the rear shocks, click here

Our favorite Sprite steering wheel

The green Bugeye “Marco” leaves our shop today, and one of our favorites of the many upgrades on this car is the steering wheel. This is a very high-quality product from Moto-Lita, with an improved spoke layout that allows easy visibility of the Sprite dashboard gauges. The Moto Lita brand name is artfully engraved in the top spoke. And it is a name worth proudly displaying, because their quality is superior to the other generic wood wheels you often find on British cars.

A new wood wheel is one of the nicest ways to upgrade your cockpit. The billet hub is so well-finished, you can see the tonneau zipper and seat ribs reflected! You can order this art piece for your Bugeye by clicking here!

New Product! Improved Bugeye Sprite Seat spacers for sale!

Here’s a part often overlooked yet extremely important if you’re restoring your Sprite interior.

Original Bugeyes had a thin, black, wooden spacer under the driver seat, to shim the seat up so it would clear the longitudinal member welded beneath the seat. With the thin rubber mats that came with the car, this original spacer provided an adequate gap and allowed easy movement of the seat frame fore and aft. But with the advent of thicker carpet in Bugeye interiors, the original thin spacer no longer works. Even if you don’t move your seat often, with original thin spacers, it’s very difficult to install your seat on modern carpet.

We have fixed these issues with an improved product… our thicker seat spacer makes installation of your seats easier, and allows better clearance between the seat frame and the floor pan.

This is a Bugeyeguy exclusive, not available anywhere else. Every Bugeye needs a least one pair. And if you have two adjustable seats, you need two pairs! (stock Bugeyes had a fixed passenger seat that requires no wood, but many have been changed to adjustable)

Spridget LeMans front shocks, upgraded and extra cool!

We are huge fans of lever shocks. They provide the best ride quality and performance for Bugeyes (and all Spridgets). All the tube shocks we have tested are too harsh and thus make the cars less sure-footed. So we use lever shocks exclusively on all the cars that pass through our building.

Still, we’ve always wanted something a little stiffer, and we’re excited to introduce a new product that delivers. Our new LeMans shocks is about 20% stiffer than stock, so you’ll enjoy handling benefits without sacrificing the ride quality so vital to a great Sprite outing. And they look super-cool too, finished in silver with a red racing stripe! Click here to try-out these new shocks-you’ll find them (and lots of other great innovations) in our catalog!
