ďSo youíre thinking of buying a Bugeye Sprite?Ē

Can you find the rust hole in this picture? And should you worry it? (Answer below)


Learn exactly what to look for when shopping for a Bugeye!

Introducing a new DVD that will save you thousands of dollars and help you to learn the difference between a rapidly appreciating classic and a slowly corroding wreck! Learn which cars to chase and which ones to leave in the weeds! Maximize your investment! Feel confident about your Sprite purchase!

Imagine having your own private ďBugeye coachĒ as you search for a great example... now, you can learn all you need to know before you go shopping... with this fun and entertaining DVD!

Iím David Silberkleit. Since 1979, Iíve owned the Bugeye featured on these pages. Iíve kept this wonderful vehicle because every year there are fewer and fewer on the road and each year it just gets more special. After almost 30 years of marriage with this car, Iíve learned a thing or two about their proper care and feeding. In fact, Iíve disassembled and rebuilt just about every square inch of this vehicle... I know Bugeyes inside and out... and I know how to do them right. On this new 60 - minute DVD, Iíll show you what to watch out for if you are shopping for a used Sprite so you can maximize your enjoyment and minimize your expense. While these are simple cars, if you don't know what you are looking for, you can get badly burned by a Sprite that would be better put out to pasture. Remember, these cars were made almost 50 years ago. Many have rusted. Others have been poorly restored by amateurs. I've created this DVD so that you can learn what to watch out for so that you don't up with a used car disaster! 

Weíll walk through every inch of the vehicle... Iíll show you rust vulnerabilities... structural vulnerabilities, mechanical upgrades and drivability secrets so you can enjoy your new Bugeye in a wide range of conditions. And by the way, the photo above shows the battery tray on a friend's Bugeye. The long oval hole is for warm air from the heater box (removed) and the rust hole is to the left of the top of this hole. The hole would normally be concealed by the heater box and battery and this is a very common place for Bugeyes to rust. Nothing too serious and a very easy fix, especially with a small hole like this one. But you'll want to make sure this tray isn't completely gone on your new Bugeye... otherwise the battery might just end up on your lap!

Hereís an excerpt from  ďSo youíre thinking of buying a Bugeye Sprite?Ē that describes a problem that can be much more serious:

And thatís just the beginning... I cover every square inch in this DVD program. For example:

  • Do you know what to watch out for if you upgrade to front disk brakes?
  • Do you know which portion of the Bugeye, if rusted, makes a Bugeye useful only as an anchor for a small boat?
  • Do you know which engine you should have in your classic?
  • Do you know how to make a Bugeye weather tight?... Keep it in the garage on a rainy day! (just kidding, the top and side curtains work reasonably well if you install them properly... Iíll show you how)

On this new DVD,I answer these questions and more!

We walk through correct interior set- up. Switches, gauges, seats, spare tire & jack, carpeting and every little detail to make your car fun, safe and correctly restored so that it looks like it did when it rolled out of the factory. Iíll also review all the mechanicals with you... carburetion, engine size, transmission options, rear end ratios... itís all here!

Iíll also show you safety improvements (field tested on my car) as well as the secrets of making your Bugeye into a functional highway cruiser. In fact, hereís a clip the shows one of my favorite Bugeye secrets that might even save your life!
