My history includes three Mark I Sprites, one Mark II Sprite, and an AH 3000. I rebuilt one of the Frogeyes completely (mechanically), and one I had bought from my brother – a 1958, with the snaps on top of the windscreen for the hood, one of the worst designs ever. The Mark I is still my favorite fun car, but I have to admit that I have the occasional hots for a BN1, preferably an S or M version. Oh well, one can be allowed their little fantasies now and again, can’t one? 🙂
Great advertisement, I would buy that framed and put it on my wall.
My father-in-law has an unrestored Austin-Healey sitting in his garage!
