    Bob Dunaven's 1959 Austin Healey Sprite. (Salinas, CA) The Frogeye a English group effort that was designed by Don Healey with the motor supplied by Austin and manufactured by MG. It was intended to be a low-cost sports car that "a chap could keep in his bike shed" and originally sold for 669 pounds. The Frogeye was originally designed to have retractable headlights but when production began it was determined by MG that the headlights would make the car too expensive. At the last minute prior to production Don Healey penciled in the distinctive headlights. The headlights made the car iconic and gave it the name "Frogeye" in England and "Bugeye" in the Colonies. This in one example where the "bean counters" created a truly unique car design. The original engine was 948cc and produced a whopping 43hp - slightly more than your typical garden tractor of today!! This car has a lightly bored out 1100cc with a Weber carburetor and is somewhat respectable in its "oomph". The Frogeye was produced from 1958 through 1961. This model is a 1959. This car was purchased by my best friend in 1972 and has remained in a small group of high school friends since 1972. I have owned the car since 1992. The Frogeye is a car that seems to make people smile and it seems that virtually everyone knows someone who has owned one. (1100cc, class 2a) Withdrawn

    Steven Mandell's 1978 Seab Flipper. (Claremont, CA) Sans Permis vehicle built in France for anyone over age 14 regardless of loosing licence for even driving while intoxicated, as apparently it's designers were at the time of its being first drawn up. It features a just barely strong enough to hold up to driver's wieght Plastic (not fiberglass) body,and even one piece plastic hinges. The front wheels are only about 20" apart and swivel around a central spindle (like an old wagon) fully 180 degrees, so in addition to being able to look like it has just one front and central wheel turned fully sideways, it can make 360 degree pirouettes within the length of its own wheelbase. Charmingly misguided, and now fully functionally ressurrected to original form and function. It even comes with an ancillary left pedal for pedaling the car when you need that little extra oomph to get you started out from a small gully without even having to get out and push. (47cc, class 1b)

    Todd Dunning's 1962 Austin Cooper. (Belmont, CA) Car #62 was pulled out of a creek in Bonny Doon in 1998. Over the years a tree had grown underneath the floor and raised the battered body several feet into the air. It bore the signs of extensive target practice by local kids over the decades. One of those kids later returned to hack it out of the tree and complete metalwork, body and paint in the early 2000s. The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust confirmed it as a 998cc Cooper model, with a photocopy from a rally event inscribed "Cilwendeg Oct. 67". Current owner Todd Dunning installed interior, engine, subframes and suspension to Cooper S spec. Now with a Stage 3 1362cc engine, it won it's class at the Mini Meet West Autocross and is one of the fastest A-Series minis on the West Coast.
