Yeh, I drove my Bugeye from Richmond VA to Woodbridge NJ when all highway speed limits were 70MPH and folks would drive 90MPH going u I95. My Sprite topped out at 58MPH. It sat so low that all I recall is hours of door handles flying past me and a bad case of tinnitus from winding out the engine the entire drive with a Stebro exhaust. I'd love to own one again but I've lost that youthful sense of denial. That was a good deal on your Alpine, all things considered. I've owned lots of cars I got cheap, but none of them under $100.
