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.
