Bugeye Sprite

As I was driving south on I-35 last Saturday I saw the distinct hood of a Bugeye Sprite approaching from behind me. I haven't seen one in many years so I snapped a picture out the window as he drove past. Those of you that have read my books, Big Easy and Murder Etouffee, will remember the Bugeye as Mama Mulate's - the voodoo mambo - car of choice. I also downloaded another picture off the web of a 1959 Bugeye so you could get a better look at the distinctive headlights. Just like Mama Mulate, they don't build them like that anymore.
