AUSTIN-HEALEY SPRITE

There's a problem with convertibles: they've got no rigidity, which makes them a wobbly mess to cane through the corners. The Austin-Healey Sprite was the first car to solve that problem using a chassis, body, and suspension all tied together to eliminate flex. Over the years, the Sprite was affectionately referred to as the "Bugeye" or "Frogeye" for its round, upright headlamps. Although the original design and engineering goal was to have them sink into the bodywork when not in use, that didn't happen because of cost-cutting. Which is a probably a good thing, given the Brit's reputation for shoddy electronics.
