Here's one already done.

What a nice engine bay. None of that electrickery nonsense.

And a listing worth reading for its own sake hoho.

Not mine, but I feel somewhat tempted. Have to ask the seller if there's space for a wicker picnic hamper.

Interesting. Not buying the SCCA road-racing stuff as I don't think there was any category that would allow a V8 auto-tranny Bugeye to race. Maybe it ran Solo or auto-x, though. Doesn't seem to have a bonnet that I'm familiar with. Good thing it's the "Frite" and not the "Fright" which is a pretty famous Bugeye with a Jag motor: [www.spriteparts.com.au]

I love that thing... It's a bit high to me but if I had the funds lying around I'd probably pick it up
