Would be a shame for it to be scrapped, but it is way beyond my ambition level...

It's not a Triumph. It's an Austin Healey Bug-eye Sprite.

Oops, you're right. Never mind - scrap it!

I put up a link in the sprigits forums. It does not look to bad.

I've seen much worse! Odd, though, to see the TR-style rear spare tire door! Presumably some previous owner got the idea from a TR? I don't believe that's original....

awww- it will buff out nice

A Bugeye for free? How can you beat that?

That is original, just usually covered by the license plate.

Andrew, it's not a tire door, just an indent for those odd tags they use "over there"...

Im a bit curious as to why he, or even the mother, doesnt know what it is. Then again, Ive met people who didnt even know what YEAR their daily driver was.

Andrew, it's not a tire door, just an indent for those odd tags they use "over there"... Ahhh, I see that now. Guess it was the shadowing that made it look deeper than it is.

Never mind!

You would be suprised how good a car like that can look with a good clean up. You never know. If it was near me, i'd already have it in my driveway. (luckily i can park 12 cars there.LOL)

Why does this have to be so far away. I never run into things like this here.

If there was any room at all left in the barn... I'd be on my way down to get that...
