Spritely Wedding News


Last weekend Sprite Club Member and Bugeye Owner Hamish Bubner married Linda Beagley at the family property near Maitland on Yorke Peninsula.

The ceremony was held in one of the paddocks, with guests seated and enjoying the view of the property. Also the weather was perfect for the ceremony.

As is the wedding tradition both the bride and Sprite wore white, and the Bugeye was joined by other classic vehicles including a Ford Mustang and “Barge” Fairlane.

Hamish had attempted to drive the Sprite from Adelaide, but it needed a small amount of “flat-tow assistance” to arrive at the property in time for the wedding.

On behalf of the Members of the Sprite Club of SA, we wish Hamish and Linda congratulations on their Special Day and years of happiness and memories together

For Sale: – 1967 MG Midget Mk 11 $7800

This car was most likely a private import and is equivalent to a Sprite Mk 3A, having wire wheels, wind-up windows but not the folding hood seen on later Midgets. Car has a good straight body and drives very well.

Brakes have recently been overhauled and new tyres fitted to the wire wheels, which have tight spokes and have been clearly replaced at some time.

The 1098cc A-series motor is strong and smooth and suspension is good.

Gearbox shows signs of wear and will require work in the future.

Upholstery and roof will require replacing. (Roof and frame provided but fabric is old and has lost flexibility.)

An ideal project which can also be driven as is.

Wanted – Bugeye

Is it time to sell your much loved Bugeye?
 
The time has come for me to buy a Bugeye of my own. I’d love to be the next custodian of a much loved Bugeye and take over from an owner who is ready to pass their car on. Ideally I’m looking for a car that has been well maintained or has had some restoration work done to it, a bare metal rebuild at some point would be great (but not essential), what’s important is that the car has a sound and well maintained rust free body and preferably a steel bonnet. It’s also important that the car and any work done to it has been as true to the original as possible. A car with well maintained records would also be great as the car’s history is important to me. So in short, I’m looking for a loved Bugeye that I can continue to look after, maintain and restore for many years to come until it becomes my turn to hand the car on to a new generation of Bugeye owner. My budget is very realistic, especially for a well maintained or well restored car. So if you feel it’s time to pass on your Bugeye to it’s next custodian and want to know that it will be cared for and fussed over for years to come, I’m your man! You can reach me on 0402700779 or on email at adam.toma@bigpond.com
 
Regards, Adam.
