I think the Sebring Sprites like these are more attractive: [www.sebringsprite.com] . But the Ashley with roll-up windows and a hi-power engine swap could be a lot of fun and extend the Spring and Fall driving season.

I'm with Rick. The Ashley is a nice looking car but the Sebring Sprites look more "put together" to me.

I actually like the Ashley better. I've never liked the Spridgets stock squared off rear wheel well design. If it was rounded like the front it would look much better. Look at the white one at the top of the page and you see how out of place the stock rear wheel well looks.

David, Take the white car on the Ashley site and photoshop the rear wheelwell round. Maybe Z car rivet on flares and wide wheels. Makes me want to find a Spridget body for my next project.
