When Glen Byrns said of his 1959 Austin Healey “Bugeye” Sprite, below, “It’s a go out in the country and blow your hair back kind of car,” Enterprise photographer Fred Gladdis took him up on it. Gladdis explains the experience here:
We take a short drive west on Russell Boulevard down the avenue of trees. The sound is deep, loud, rumbling … pleasant to anyone who has a hankering for this sort of ride. Glen isn’t completely happy with the tuning until Bugsy is good and warmed up. He has been learning the skill of tuning the car with software. There’s a portal under the dash that provides computer linkage. “Once you get good at the tuning, it should start and pull away from the curb like a Toyota Corolla,” Glen explains.
