Performance Art

By Tony Ly I have been in the hobby since my late teens. I love these cars, especially the Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite for its unique personality and character. As I got older, my visual taste and appreciation expanded to other forms of art, too. The first time I saw Revi Ferrer’s work, I was immediately…

Bugeye Beginnings

By Graham Robson Many years ago, when I was an undergraduate at Oxford, I met up and became great friends with Mike Woodcock. We were both petrol-heads, both determined to join Jaguar if we could, and became the company’s first two graduate trainees in 1957. Mike and I roomed together for several years after that,…

By John and Emma Kit Whether it was driving her pedal car or going to car shows, my daughter Emma has always been keen about cars and very enthusiastic when she was able to experience them up close. But being able to “drive” them was the most fun for her. When I introduced Emma to…

Background Noise

Much more fun than writing an article is the process of defending it after the fact. How could I, a paid professional, so utterly butcher the spelling of Snoqualmie Pass? My good friend Jim Pesta called and told me about the time he had an experience like mine driving top down in the rain with…

At Full Chat: Winter 1994

I recently came across the invoice from Perry Fina for that wonderful cast aluminum, three branch “cut out” exhaust system he sold me for my first MG TD, the green RHD car that got me hooked on this addiction that dictated the course of my life. Among other activities, Fina’s mid-Manhattan garage served as the…

“Through the Dark Night Brightly”

OR ‘How I Learned to love the ground clearance of my Austin-Healey exhaust.’ The Hurst shifter and radar detector cord dangling from the sun visor should have been a dead give away. Larry was considered a novice by the Northern Ohio Valley SCCA and as such was entitled to a get-acquainted run through the autocross course, with an experienced driver before the…
