Who You Are: After working at a job I hated for far too long, I've just finished an undergraduate degree in Information Technology and am about to embark on an honours year. The lesson? Life's too short to spend it doing something you don't enjoy. I've loved these cars for years, and it's taken me this long to enter into ownership - I always thought the cars beyond me financially and technically. What a great surprise to find out I was wrong. Now I'm looking for a nice bugeye to add to the garage. Other interests? Skiing, reading, permaculture, theatre, making teddy bears!

Who You Are: I was born in 1971 and got my 1963 sprite in 1998. Got the bug from my brother Dave, (also on the list) who would never let me drive his MkIII, so I just had to get my own. It has a rebuilt 1098 (10CC type) containing slightly wider bores, a cam ground to 731 factory specs. It breathes in through standard HS2@ S.U's and out through an LCB extractor. I assembled the engine myself which was loads of fun and rewarding to do. I'm a scientist (chemistry) by profession but only just finished university and nobody has been game enough to employ me yet!
