Not mine yet. But getting really close to pulling the trigger. Going to look at it in person on Monday. Hopefully bring it home with me if all checks out.

Looks great. My 66 is dreaming about looking like that as it slumbers in pieces.

Here are a few pictures of my now drivable Frogeye, that I introduced earlier this year. Everything has gone OK, and as I mentioned in a separate thread, the new windshield from UK was not too hard to fit. The last picture is from our “clubhouse”, a confectionery in Bromma, our part of Stockholm, where we have a small Frogeye Association that can gather up to 8 or 9 Frogeyes. Every Saturday morning at 10 we meet up and go for a drive, if the Swedish weather permits. Otherwise we just have coffee and buns, “fika” as we say.
Cheers!

Here's a fun one... A while back, I had just finished some brake work on the bugeye and decided to do a test drive around my neighborhood. Out of nowhere, a group of people flagged me down asking if they could use my car in their model photo shoot. Why not? It was pretty surreal. Just another example of the unique experiences these little cars can provide.

Here's a behind the scenes photo...

Well, FRG EYE is now in my care (update since post above). I've been having fun driving him.

Today I drove 170 miles round trip from south of SF (peninsula) to Santa Rosa and back. My girlfriend and I visited with her 90 year old uncle and my 93 year old aunt - it turns out they live 2 minutes from one another. I busted my aunt out of the old farts home for an hour and we went for a ride in the bugeye.




When we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge in the morning, you could only see about halfway up the towers from the fog. It was beautiful and clear on the way home this evening.

Very nice but I think this thread is for pictures of your car. I didn't notice a car in any of the pictures. I did notice a yellow sweater though.

It looks like she may have been a little cold from wearing shorts.

Yesterday was a day off for me and my girlfriend. We went to the barn so she could ride her Percheron, Jack.

Jack met his first bugeye. Jack outweighs the car by 300-400lbs.
