Shortly after I got married, I purchased my first Austin Healey. It was a 1956 100-4, red. It was a beautiful car, and fun to drive. However, when my firstborn came into the world it was time to get ready for family life, and the Healey had to go.
Almost 40 years later, I had the opportunity to buy my Bugeye Sprite from a guy in Jasper, MO. It was the right car at the right time for me. Like my 100-4, it is a great looking car, and I have had fun riding the back roads between Kansas City and Lawrence.
