Also known as a Frog eyed Sprite, what a wonderful little car. We owned one almost 40 years ago and today I renewed my acquaintance with the mark, albeit for only a short time.

This car belongs to Stewart Hunt, from southern Vienne,  who has brought it up to quite a high standard, not concurs but it is very original and a delight to drive. Apart from looking after this wonderful car Stewart’s main passion is for motorbikes and scooters. Evidently he has something in the region of about 100, not all of these are in quite the same condition as the Frogeyed Sprite but at least they are not deteriorating, and some of them are being worked on and restored to their former glory. Unfortunately Stewart can only spend a couple of days a week on his hobby as work ( satellite dish installation) gets in the way.

If you have an old motorbike in the back of your barn then do contact Stewart, if you have a Frogeyed Sprite then give me a call!

Many thanks to Living Poitou-Charentes magazine where I saw an article about Stewart and his car and even more thanks to Stewart and his wife Lynda for their hospitality in suffering my ohhs and ahs at their car. To contact Stewart with offers of old motorbikes but perhaps not with requests to gawp at his car his email is f5vjj@live.co.uk also he might be able to help with satellite dishes.
