The year in Bugeyes

What a year! We passed the 200-Bugeyes-sold mark this year (now 214 sold). We continue to meet great new owners, including sentimental folks who grew up with these cars and younger people who have fallen in love the the Bugeye’s infectious personality. The market remains strong for these lovable cars and they continue to demonstrate a great value with a broad appeal.

We finished “Gumby’s” restoration this year, a fitting tribute to my high school car that is responsible for birthing my passion for these cars, and ultimately for the creation of our business.

The big news for us this year has been the expansion of our Bugeyeguyparts catalog… we have added a lot of new products and better capacity to handle tech questions and to walk customers through their various repairs and restorations. We plan to continue to take advantage of our field experience with these cars to help people choose the right parts for their projects. Many of the parts out there don’t fit and/or require modification. We sell the best solutions, and have combed the various resources so you don’t have to… we are your one stop shop to get it done right. We routinely advise customers how to work around challenges. You’re invited to call to experience our exceptional tech support.

The other big news this year is our building expansion. We have added a fantastic new workshop behind our building, which will make our builds easier and will also help us to handle more customer restoration work. We currently have cars in our shop from Boston and Alabama for major restoration work, and the new space will allow us to handle that work more efficiently.

We welcome an opportunity to sort-out your car- please call if you want us to pick it up and make it right (we can pick it up anywhere in the USA). Every car I have purchased online has needed a major makeover (in spite of promised perfection by the seller), and if you are a new Sprite owner, chances are good your car would benefit from a visit to our facility. You won’t recognize it when we are done-we can transform your driving experience!

One of the big advantages of our expansion is to be able to work at ground level. You may have seen our infamous entrance ramps on our youtube videos… soon, we will remove the ramps and move into our ground level facility with radiant heated floors! The electrical wiring is going into the new building this week, with spray foam insulation throughout to follow in early January.

Check out the ramps in the pictures throughout this post, and now on those ramps live on the concrete foundation in the new structure that envelopes our backyard. It’s a big moment in our evolution, a fitting milestone for our tenth year!

Thanks to all of you who enjoy this blog, who buy our parts, and who call to tell us how much they love these cars. We have enjoyed the ride just as much as you, and we wish you an awesome 2018!

Happy Holidays from Bugeye Sprites the world over!

With a face that can brighten any day, it’s no wonder the iconic Bugeye is seen on many a holiday card (and in marketing campaigns, movies, etc). These are special cars! And we are clearly not the only ones who feel this way.

Here’s Hagerty’s card this year, notice the Bugeye rubs shoulders with an F40. I am not sure Enzo would approve, but we’ll take it!

And below, the Antique Automobile Club Museum re affirms that the Bugeye is Santa’s first choice.

Happy Holidays from all of us at Bugeyeguy to all of you! We wish you peace, joy and just the right exhaust note this Holiday Season!

Who drives Bugeye Sprites?

Heather brought us her Bugeye this week for sorting-she bought it online, and it’s not as sure-footed as she would like-we’ll fix it, and extract that last 20% to make this nice car into a spectacular driver!

Of note: this is the first Bugeye we’ve ever had delivered in a horse trailer.

It’s the first time a Bugeye ever came to us with it’s own custom satin sheets and pajamas.

It’s also the first time anyone ever dressed-up after dropping off their car (actually she was heading to a concert).

We’ll take her new purchase and fix the various rattles and noises, and upgrade the interior cosmetics, and then back into the horse trailer it goes for the trip home!

Thank you Heather, for the opportunity to make your car great!

Bugeyeguy on CarsYeah!

I am honored this week to join the roster of car lovers with archived interviews in the CarsYeah audio library. Give this one a listen, I share a bunch of history about the evolution of our business, and much of this discussion has not been previously recorded anywhere else. Click here to listen to the podcast.

Check out the library of recordings, there are many great auto-interviews at this website.

“Rescue Me” Bugeye rescued

Remember the “Rescue” Bugeye buried in the weeds? Here you can see the car at it’s new home, safely in a new garage in Virginia. We almost lost this one to the crusher, and it’s actually a sound car with great potential. We’re excited that we could remotely facilitate another Bugeye revival.

This leaf green ’59 Sprite was plucked from the weeds in Grand Junction, Colorado and winched onto a trailer for delivery to Kevin in Virginia, the proud new owner. The car initially looked pretty sad in the small picture at left, but the potential is clear now that the car has been extracted. If you are unfamiliar, normally, a car stored in this manner would have the rocker panel and rear fender bottoms completely rusted away.

This car has not run since the 80s, but how delightful to see the rocker panel and fender bottoms so intact, even after a prolonged hibernation outside. The floors turned out to be quite good too. Thankfully, the dry Southwest helped keep this excellent restoration candidate alive. And thanks to Paul, the prior owner, who preserved this car and offered it to me so that we could find it a new home and ultimately get it back on the road!

Bugeyeguy Evolution

The cars just keep on lining-up.

And so, after extensive dialogue with Bodhi regarding this situation, we have decided to expand. He assured me that digging, while messy, always produces great results.

During the past six months we have completely ripped-apart our nice little back yard with progress in mind. More space creates lots of new opportunities, and we are on the case.
In this photo album below, you can see how we took out a few trees, leveled the property, poured the footings, installed radiant heat, poured the slab, and now, throughout the month of October, we will be erecting the new structure. Our new corrugated steel arched building will tuck behind our 1951 Quonset hut. Throughout the fall, we will be fitting out this new facility with even better resources to serve our customers.

We’ll have more lifts, more storage and more efficient work space, all of which will help us to do an even better job. We’ve already completed our new rear staircase, which helps us access our giant parts inventory faster, directly from the shop floor.

Thanks to all of you for your support: for helping us place more than 200 Bugeyes in new homes, for choosing us to be your parts supplier, for trusting us to sort out and make-wonderful your sports cars. Thanks to our incredible staff for embracing challenges on a daily basis. Thanks to (sports car lover) Jeff Hoover of Tappe Architects for helping us figure out what goes where.

And a special thanks to you, for being the best customers in the classic car universe!
