Who You Are: I am a professonal Counselor, working at the time in a Middle School, but have much experience working with high risk youth in adventure-based programs. Developed a 4-day backcountry program which I conducted for nearly 18 years. My interest in LBC's began with my very first automobile, a 1963 TR4 that I bought off a used car lot in 1965. Burnt oil but my first foray into a curve at speed nearly drove my sphinter muscles wild. I traded the TR for a brand new AH 3000, right off the transport, in 1966 at a dealership in Cincinnati. Drove the Healey for 3 years, then traded it for a larger vehicle and got away from the breed until 3 years ago when I bought Miss Vicky for $400 from a lady who had kept her stored inher basement for 12 years. I enjoy rock climbing, working on my cars, hiking/backpacking, fishing, esp trout fishing, drinking really good beer, like Guinness, writing poetry, traveling, and hanging out around a campfire.

Who You Are: I'm a lifelong LBC nut, and it's all my Dad's fault... He had a '65 Sprite that sat in our driveway until I got old enough to work on cars, and we fixed it up. When I left for college, he kept the car, and when I got kicked out of college, I had to have something to do, so I got my '69 Sprite. That was 7 years ago. It was my daily driver for 5 years, now it's my fun car. One of these days I'm gonna build one of those V8 MGBs.

Comment: EX-Spreen F-Production Sprite converted back to street
Check: YES
Where: Lancaster - Central Pennsylvania area
Who You Are: April 2000: I have recently purchased a 67 F-prod sprite that I am converting to street use. I have not owned a LBC since the mid 80's; First LBC was 62 midget purchased in 1972 which became autocross car. In 73 my dad and I purchased HProd Bugeye and began SCCA racing at Nelson's Ledges and Mid Ohio. Bugeye lasted about 5 years until 3 end over end flips by yours truly did it in. After that I moved on to Datsun 510 B Sedan, then GT-4 Datsun B210, then Lola T540 Formula Ford and finally C/Sports Racer in mid 80's. In 1986, retired from racing and bought bugeye to totally restore. I got about 80 percent finished $6k invested and life changes forced me sell it. Bugeye sold at bargain price ($2500) to some lucky sole in Baltimore area who has not done anything with it; That was 92. Finally back into LBC's, but have much to relearn. Plan to have sprite running later this summer. I purchased second complete parts sprite (HAN8L) two weeks ago, which will provide most of things needed to get race car going on the street.
