Xmas Dinner – wrap up!

Xmas Dinner – From Barb

Many thanks to Chris and Tina for a great evening last Saturday night. The weather was perfect, and 30 members were lucky enough to enjoy a three course meal thanks to the Brine’s. Even Father Xmas found time to come and visit us. To all those members who supported the evening, Im sure you had a good time, and to those who didn’t come, well there is always next year. Again, thanks to the Brine’s.

 

Historic Rego = Membership by 31 December!!

Just a gentle reminder that to maintain your historic registration into 2014 you must be a financial member of the club before the end of 2013! As well as fulfil all the other obligations.

This is due to changes to the conditional registration scheme – not by the Sprite Club!  If you are not a member by this date your car will be deemed unregistered.

You will need to have the following documents for historic registration – follow the link for the documents

Sprite Club Membership Renewal Form including Membership Subs or a Receipt for EFT Transfer.
Signed and Witnessed Statutory Declaration Form – and the vehicle inspected!
Current Log Book
Current Registration Certificate (Blue Registration Certificate – NOT the Registration Renewal Form)
$5.00 if a new Log Book is required.

Cars and Parts For Sale

I am, after many years, selling my collection of Sprites/Midgets and parts. At this stage I am looking for a buyer who would take the whole collection. Alternately, if someone offered enough for either or both of the Midgets, I would throw in all of the parts. The cars and parts are located at Goolwa.

Here are the major items :-

· “Rubber nose” MG Midget, 1500 engine, left hand drive, complete, very straight, original and free of rust, motor and gearbox need to be re-installed.

· “Round arch” MG Midget, 1275 engine, left hand drive, straight, free of rust, no motor or gearbox.

· Bugeye body shell, accident damage in front, but straight from fire wall back.

· Fibreglass front, new, E-type style, suit all models.

· Fibreglass front, bugeye shape.

· MG Midget gearbox, very low mileage, gears in excellent condition, cracked casing.

· Several other gearboxes, Mark 1 to Midget, varying condition.

· Several half shafts, Mark 1 to Midget.

· Wire wheels, solid wheels.

· Set of 5 historic racing composite wheels, designed by ASP racing, suit Sprite, 13 X 8

· Shock absorbers, wishbones, hubs, disc brakes, prop shafts, steering columns, etc.

· Bonnet, centre cowl section, mud guards, boot lids, doors.

· New rear mudguard, LHS, MG Midget

· Racing 1275 motor, hill climb winner from the seventies.

· Straight cut racing gearbox.

Note that even without the Midgets and the Bugeye shell, all of the rest of the collection (wheels, gearboxes, panels and parts in boxes would fill a small pantech. The LHD cars come with all parts required to convert to RHD

If I am not able to find a buyer for the lot I will need to consider selling individual parts. I will let you know if that happens.

A ballpark figure for all the cars and parts would be around $14,000. Failing that I would consider offers around $6,000 for the Rubbernose, $3,000 for the Roundarch, $2,000 for the Bugeye shell (including fibreglass front), and $5,000 for all the parts.

Thanks,
Reinhard Walker

Bugeye Numberplate for sale

I have recently purchased a 1961 Austin Healey Sprite which was located in South Australia. The exciting news was it came with “BUGEYE” number plates. Unfortunately as I live in Victoria I am unable to use them. I have loved & driven sprites for many years & I know these are a rare find. I would also like to know they go to a good home.

Could I please enquire how I would go about listing these plates for sale. My bugeye is currently undergoing a complete restoration cialis discount & as you would know the expenses continue to climb.

Many thanks,

Nicole Beeforth
