This is a 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite. While some may think I'm a butcher, I've modified the car to accept an Rx7 rotary engine with a 5spd, shortened rx7 drive shaft, narrowed rx7 limited slip rear end, and 4 wheel disc brakes. I've also used the sprite pedals hooked to the Rx7 master cylinder and brake cylinder. Has a short throw shifter, wide mini-lites wheels/tires, VW radiator, EZ wiring harness, and rx7 oil cooler. Many other things here and there.
And yes, with 5 times the factory horsepower, it moves faster than a fart in an elevator. It's only 1400lbs!!!

Great little car. I bet it's a blast to drive.
Hey man nice Bugeye. What type of radiator did you use. I just finished putting a 13B in my Sprite and I'm having a hard time finding one that fits under the hood!
