Just bought my first bugeye, so hi! I seem to be going all in with English these days; also have a '67 Ford Cortina GT and '65 Sunbeam Imp.

This Sprite has some mods; 1275cc motor, crossflow radiator, alternator, fuseblock, etc. Hopefully done right.

Looks like a great forum; I'm sure I will have all kinds of questions.

Whoa! Looks great! And like someone cared about it. Welcome to the forum -- a good bunch of people on here and a lot of valuable information. If you ever have a question and want to see if it's ever been discussed, go to the Search function at the top of the page, then to Advanced Search, fill in a topic word and hit search; any time that word has been in a post it will show up. There is also a very active MG MIdget forum available, and as Midgets and Sprites are very similar, lots of info there too. Enjoy the car, and the forum.

Nice!! Love the color combo. You're not too far from me. Maybe I'll see you at a meetup one day. Definitely bring it to the Queen's English British Car Show next spring!

Thanks. I almost always bring something to Supercar Sunday in Woodland Hills.
Do you go to that? Hope to have it here and registered in the next two weeks.

Looks great ! I'm up in Topanga Canyon and I just bought a '59. It's not here yet. I owned a '60 back in the day. I'll keep an eye out for you.

I kept scanning these pages for folks in my area....looks like like a few finally turned up! Garm, what do you usually bring to Supercar Sundays? I was there for part of the last three Sundays with my Sprite. I am usually chatting with Mike, the guy with the electric converted Frogeye.

I'd love to meet up with some local fellow Sprite owners.

I can also make myself available if someone needs an extra hand in the garage. thumbs up

I usually drive these in rotation to SCS:

1953 Dodge M37 truck (green)
1977 Porsche 911 slant nose (red)
1967 Ford Cortina GT (blue)
2003 GO-4 meter maid three wheeler (yellow)

Obviously not brand loyal... spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

I'll be there, but I don't think I'll have the bugeye registered yet. Look for my red 911

Garm, I should be able to make it out there. I'll look for you.
