Just a reminder that this May 16 -20th, 2008 Sprite Jubilee, the 50th celebration of the introduction of the Austin-Healey Sprite will be held in Carlisle, PA in conjunction with the Sports and forign/kit car show.

As part of Sprite Jubilee one attendee will go home with a '69 MG Midget, affectionaly called GAMS (Give-Away-Midget/Sprite). GAMS made her public appearence this past weekend and while not completely finished (a few loose ends to sort out) she is roadworthy. Pictures of her debut can be seen at https://public.fotki.com/BiffJ/give-away-midgetsprite/

The offical website for Sprite Jubilee is https://www.austinhealeysprite.org/index.html

All British car owner are invited to join in on the golden anniversary of the Austin-Healey Sprite.

Biff -- bit of a side question, but what steering wheel/hub is on that car? Looks like it uses the original Bugeye horn push, though it's hard to see in the photos.

That would be a fun car to win!

Drew,

I can't remember the name of the company. They are made in England. It is not Mota-Lita the other one. Yes the bugeye horn push just fits but is not functional as the horn push is located on the turn signal stalk. It's there just for looks.

Darn, darn, darn.

Didn't know about this one.
I have a VRG vintage race in New Hampshire the same weekend, so can't go anyway.
I'll pass this on to others.
