speaking of Bugeye Sprites . . . 

I have two Bugeyes, been driving them since high school, and they are the most fun you can have with your pants on . . .   SWMBO insists that I don't need two, so I'm going to put the Blue one up for sale in the spring . . .  1275, 1-3/4 SU, headers, 5 speed, new clutch, disc brakes, aluminum radiator, alternator, MSD, gorgeous interior, etc. etc . . . $27,500 firm.  No top or side curtains, but who's driving these in the rain?

My Sprite was just featured in a segment on Jay Leno's garage, where he's trying to talk actor Brad Garrett (6'9") into buying a Bugeye.  Scheduled to air in June.

check out the pics.

there are two public screenings on Sept 9, two press & industry screenings and one public screening on Sept 10, a press & industry screening on Sept 12, a public screening on Sept 13, and one more public screening on Sept 14.  that gives you guys EIGHT opportunities to see the film!

the movie is playing at the Toronto Film Festival in early September, if anyone is up in that neck of the woods . . . 


are you sure about the lug pattern?  if it's a Ford Escort, i believe the pattern is 4X108.  please check.
some pics would be great!

hi all . . .   i'm selling my 1967 Austin Cooper S . . .  at $57,500 i think it's competitively priced.  check out recent sales on BaT . . .   thanks for looking, and let me know if you're interested.


full disclosure:  i'm an entertainment lawyer, and i represent the screenwriters of the film.



68CountrySedan:  Crying and being scared shitless doesn't come across as a sissy? Really?

I never expected a documentary, but creation of a narrative spell that isn't broken. HFII crying; spell broken. Revs go up; spell broken. IMHO

I guess "sissy" is in the eye of the beholder . . .  and context is everything.  in the film, HFII and Leo Beebe are trying to kick Ken Miles off the team.  in an effort to save Ken, Carroll more or less forces HFII into the car and then purposely takes him on a crazy hot lap, just so HFII will understand that, while he may be rich and know the car business, he knows nothing about racing or race drivers . . .  btw, the first thing HF says when he gets in the car is "I just sat on my balls."  funny stuff.

i've already acknowledged that people on this forum will definitely have some cringes.   the movie wasn't made for SAAC members, it was made for the general population as a piece of entertainment.  i think it succeeds, even though some "dramatic license" was taken in many areas.  try to put your  finely-tuned knowledge and expertise aside, and just sit back and enjoy a great sports movie.
