I bought my Bugeye for $295 in 66, replaced the clutch and fixed up the body in my parents back yard, hanging the engine from a tree. Drove it daily to College and weekend trips everywhere. Quite a car. Outran a cop in upstate NY where He could not take the curves of route 9N like my Sprite could. Had to sell in 68 (for $700) when I moved to South America.
