    They were good looking for the time and you’re right, there’s some good lines in them for sure.

    If I won the lottery tomorrow, I'd want an Austin Healey Mk. I Sprite. My neighbor had one when I was a kid, and I always wanted to drive it but never got to. The day he passed away a couple years ago, I actually spent all day tailing a guy with a Sprite on a trailer... it was like an omen or something! In 20 years on the road, I've only ever spotted 2 Sprites. The other one I saw at a truckstop, and he said "Lots of people have been asking me about this car, you're the first one who could tell me what it is!"

    There are 3 sitting in a muffler shop off dyer street in El Paso Tx lots of luck trying to talk Barney out of them . Last I saw them about 7 years ago they all were still running cars but he still would not part with any of them,

    Oh I know a dealer that only deals in Sprites. The only problem is finding an unmolested one.

    All 3 of the ones I know of are bugeyed and all untouched , To him modding them in anyway would be a huge sin.
    I keep telling him unless he is driving them or at least showing them they are just going to waste :(
    But his son has told when I can have all 3 when his dad passes cause he thinks they are just ugly .
    Might have to get Jurien to pick them up for me being he has a big truck LOL But then I may have to spend months cleaning the drool off them :D
    If I remember right they are 58,59 and 63

    Sadly thats what happened to my neighbor's Sprite- it was literally a solid hunk of rust. His son (who actually owns a classic car restoration company) had it dragged off to the junkyard.

    That sucks. It’s always a shame when the classics get taken away to be junked.
