Well, I'm normally a lurker and a question poser type guy, but I have to
sort of defend Sprites too.
Granted, yeah, they aren't real stylish. But they are entry level
affordable and fun.
My first car in 1968 was a sky blue 1964 AH Sprite. I learned how to
corners fast because the car was zippered to the road. It had a throaty
muffler like Janis Joplin going through a blues scale of gears. I
about girls in that car. I took them out with the top down. If they
fretted their hair overmuch, I didn't ask them out again, because life
about appearances, it's about actions. And I learned I could be
hypocritical, because I wasn't asking ugly girls into my car. My sister
totalled that car taking a hairpin turn after the first rain of the
slicked the road in Fortuna, California, and while we sat on the steps
mom & pop grocery store waiting for our mother to come get us from Ukiah
long, long drive), we laughed our heads off like we didn't have a brain
AH Sprites. The chimp of the primates: smart and agile, but limited.
Infinitably preferable to a Deytroit coupe.
All true, but still "Butt Ugly"! :)
